Conversations with My Own Critter
In 1994 ,after having read that each half of the visual field is the property of a different hemisphere of the brain, I decided that if I could make a picture using peripheral vision to see (suggest) the shapes, then the differences in the hemispheres should be reflected in the image. So I did....and this is the result. (image 1) For me this picture was a revelation, not so much in the nature of the different shapes in the image, but the fact that there was actually a difference in the two sides of the picture...and that it felt so instinctively correct. So for the next 10 years I created images which allowed for these differences on either side of the vertical center line of the image; and the image itself became what it was as a result of the process.

It is my opinion that each hemisphere appears to have its own aesthetic agenda and that indications of that agenda can be seen in the final aesthetic solution.

I believe, that whatever else art is about it is also about this.

Here are some of the many examples I have exploring the same idea.
