I have been on some thing about hammerhead sharks for about a week or so now and still can’t break down the semiotic equation into understandable, relatable signs. Perhaps it’s their pre-historic shaped head that has had no need of evolving or maybe it’s the way they congregate in giant vortex swimming patterns in the pacific ocean for mating purposes .. or for more sublime purposes that have to do with the other reason I believe I have been drawn to them .. their use of the magnetic field of the planet for more than we should assume we know.

But that is what contemporary art essentially is .. the working of a content problem through paradigmatic and syntagmatic signs in a closed system (a canvas or virtual canvas) with illusory borders that indicate a framework for the set of variables in the equation…. that’s painting. At least that’s part of what painting should be.

this is our kitchen.

with hammerhead sharks.
