|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.
