New Day, New Work

Although not finished, as evidenced by the border on the image, this is one of three new pictures made in the last week that I consider a development.  They are made on cardboard, and the change of support for this smaller scale painting size works for a myriad of reasons.

Not-so-abstract art

People who scoff that a child could have painted a splotchy, abstract piece of modern art see more in such creations than they realize. When forced to choose a favorite between a painting by a child, chimp or other animal and one by an abstract expressionist artist, people untrained in art usually picked the professional’s creation, even if it was mislabeled as that of a child or a non-human animal, say psychologists Angelina Hawley-Dolan of Boston College and Ellen Winner of Harvard University. People intuitively discern goals or intentions in artists’ abstract paintings, the researchers propose in an upcoming Psychological Science. —Bruce Bower
