9/11/2001: notes and diagrams on studio walls
For nearly thirty years I worked daily in a wonderfully large and versatile studio inside our house, a former (and mightily improved) roadside cantina, La Union's famous "Central Bar." My space, unheated and uncooled, had been the original bar of the establishment also known as "Loco's Place," a nickname that remained appropriate during our residency there. Most of my work for those years was large-scale paintings, and the studio gave me ample room to hang eight or more canvases like those shown above, some stretching as wide as 13 feet.
When we moved from that location I discovered a 25-year history in notes, quotations, diagrams, and other hidden evidence of my creative life and my response to events both private and public. The following album details those notations. Several are date 9/11/2001 and 9/12/2001, and I share them as they were written, unedited, and with great sorrow (posted on September 11, 2014).
