There are some very sound writers contributing , although things have gone a bit quiet after the paradigm shift posts.
I have not seen your work for real, but your paintings look fantastic on screen, very inspiring !
Do you use liquitex or golden acrylics by any chance?
I enjoy some of the random textures that can emerge with these paints, which can often be incorporated into the scheme of things.
Where is you next show?

For my own part Im interested when ABSTRACT CRITICAL will get to the point where online discussion provokes studio practise and we are getting closer!
