A Moto Landscape
c. 2006 Michael St.Mark
As you stand stock still
On all Michelin fours
Becalmed by bunching
(Or driving at twenty’s
You breathe ( is that the word )
In-car “fresh air vent” exhaust
Coughed from the veh in front.
And as you devour yet another chemical crisp
Washed down with a slug of diet sludge
You contemplate amongst the cones . . .
This, we call living…
A Mondrian indeed…
St Mark, drawing people into my work & feeding back their interpretations to me plays a fundamental part in why I create…(as with most Artists, i`m sure).
Your interpretation of my work is Spot On, I offer the viewer an opportunity to be drawn into my work , to make their own perceptions through colours, the viewer can often see my interpretation…without scratching their heads or trying to view it upside down…lol – ArT FoR eVeRyOnE!!!
inner city life/pressure/blues, indeed!
Motorway journeys by day was the idea, but inner cities too, natch.
Delete the lettering and there’s a nice Piet Mondrian (kind of anyway)? The great thing about doing abstract stuff, I always thought, is that a vivid imagination on the part of the viewer can project lots of real life imagery onto the canvas – or the artist may already be dropping hints of suggestion towards a certain way of interpretation to start with.
Lots of your works strike me as done that way, perhaps to suggest architechture or grand landscapes?
