Intent and inspiration

Through Instagram I discovered a ceramic artist whose ideas align very closely with my own.

In particular I appreciate his desire to ‘remove the hand’ from the work, which in my case I hope manifests as confusion between which aspects of the composition are deliberate, which are reactionary, and which are purely serendipitous. The less the viewer knows, the better.

As I move forward, I want to cloud the issue even more, while at times moving away from the painting as image, and towards it as object. Why was this object made? What is it?

The ceramic artist is Robert Mateusz Marciniak. Look him up on Instagram here: ROBERT MATEUSZ MARCINIAK (@robertmmarc) • Instagram photos and videos

ETA: Yeah, I know those ideas are pretty old and crusty by now.
