1923 hours we are sitting in the backyard working on a cell drawing. Clearly we didnt express what each thoughtit would be. Kelly is autodrawing and I am writing it down as we go. The highway behind us is quite loud. Tomorrow we will work at beach. The stamford bridge project is closing the highway so we wont go to yale Gallery this time.
I like the polarity of Miro's fork and sneaker painting as well as a painting by Phyllis Diller. I want to do strong polarities like them.
2352 hours We are working in the aqua room. Kelly was sketching and fell asleep. I have a dvd of only lovers left alive for tomorrow to watch. It may rain some but we are going to Todds Point to draw. India was with a friend for dinner, so Wendy joined us for a cheese party, then some "automatic writing" in the new cell sketch book. Kelly was very excited to manage it while we ate cheese. We both drew on the first artcell sketch. Kelly started it by autodrawing Audrey Munsen.
an abhorrent deconstructivist- to inspire disqust from analysis; to visually breakdown to the very essence of matter and see beyond in order to confirm there is nothing.
what is the relation between seeing beyond, and desconstructionism with regard to cubism?
deconstructivism versus deconstructionism (oxymoron?); matter, meaning, time (travel), seeing beyond....
what if the narrative is drawn out as normal (autodrawn surrealism) then layered with a PUZZLE amidst chutes and bladders, and the steps and stages of puzzle/riddle exposes clues to the real story of the piece? what about a ciruitry with innerlayed words, telling a longer story.

a chevaux de frise is a barrier constructed in water or on land to obstruct enemy troops. i think it is called punji sticks if stuck in a hole as a death trap.

started a takeover on a red painting that had a vague outline of a female form. i wrote a working title on it; deconstruction of wards folly. it will keep the female form, and a plain or horizon line is added. she will be see through and not all ther at all, amongst the clouds and the sand. in the surrounding air will be the "cubed" portions of the reinforced concrete structure which made up the home of my aunt winnie ward. this idea template will house/couch a cubist rendering of a puzzle/narrative, possibly political, unknown today. i am getting an electronics kit to better learn the language of electricity and controlling it. this additional narrative layer will provide us with a deeper storyline context/capacity.
Art Cell 48 Maine 2019-03-30 saturday 1722hours
Kelly wanted the joy of life series so I brought them up today. They filled my car. I stopped by to see Kerry Perkins in New Hampshire. Her parents were there too. It was a rare and good visit. I brought a full carload of finished paintings, three foot size, per Kelly request.
Kelly fixed Bladder A, and pushed billy rubin further to completion.
1915 hours. Just had steaks, and california truffle tremor cheese on bread. I am working on a 2012 painting called captain henrys. Kelly is working on burger girl. We are planning on doing an art cell at kerrys house and have a group sculpture activity for them to participate by saran wrapping each other and then taping the forms, then cutting off the forms in order to reassemble as sculptures.
2014hours In Bladder A Kelly made tiny dots as the ring on planet uranus. Rather than just a proverbial ring, she made its shape composed if tiny dots, just like in reality.
2204hours Kelly was tired and has remnants of flu and went to bed.
2257hours Nope. Kelly is up and painting again. little do I know...
Sunday March 31st 0708hours day two
When we autodraw together on the same piece at the start of that piece, this must be the time when each of our egos dissolve and we become one entity for art. I think this occurs when conditions are met.
Kelly worked on one of the concrete boards and I worked on captain henrys. I added to billy rubin (spocking).
What role and how deeply impacted is each day made by ego.
We resolved the flower issue. They will be purely narrative and devoid of representation.
We plan to see the Miro exhibit at moma and also visit yale gallery this summer, and get Kelly into the water at todds point.
It does boil down to navigation of self. To mind ones ego. The test is to do just that when in each daily grind... and attempt to perfect that in order to receive art cell, collaborative pizza being.
I like Duchamp pursuing the idea of the idea (regarding art).
We talk about spawning as narrative(flowers, fish, jellyfish and people).

I have been looking online for meaning to ego and its removal or atleast complete recognition of it.
I found another Hugo painting hidden in my bad carpentry. Its another Hugo at Captian Henrys Diner.

sunday february 10th 0627hours. we were tired and not fully recuperated from last weekend cell 46. i fell asleep for three hours then we talked a while then ended work session at 0100 hours this morning with a netflix show called bordertown, badly dubbed.
kelly worked consistently upon the 9.5 cheeks, europa, megusta and the seahorse. i focused on billy rubin and on some cheese (old take over). we will have steak and eggs for breakfast.
kelly and i have about 95 art works that need completing. we will do this and the embark on many new pieces. I like concrete. there are four of them.
