Cross currents

Was pondering on Yves Klein(though this isn’t ‘his’ blue)

Was seeing the green blot on Degas’s monotype in the New York MOMA show which seems to be seared on my retina

Was messing about with a ‘paint over’ of an old canvas

Was pondering more on how Franz Kline had the confidence to make such enormous sweeping marks

And then this morning there was a debate on Instagram about whether we should disregard other artists’ work for fear of replicating – or ‘chew them up’ and spit them out

I’m all for the chewing idea
