— The Platitude Series —
Abstraction is a way to free oneself and not to get bogged down. Henri Michaux
Concrete things and just plain concrete surround us all; culture seems more like a prison… as the musician Sun Ra used to claim and celebrate, Space is the Place!
While there is only a tiny chance to avoid the imprint of the figurative, it is worth the escape.
We cannot repeat the past and yet, unfortunately we are still attracted by what remains familiar… as if the leash would not allow us to go too far off.
Originally in the ABC (Argentina-Bolivia-Colores) Series.
The title picture shows the ground in an Argentinian bus-stop, lit up through an opening (near Tilcara).
