Following my previous post about Anne Truitt I am pleased to say I am on my way to London where there is an exhibition of her work at the Stephen Friedman Gallery on Old Burlington street untill the 19th November.
She continues to amaze me with her insight:
“When I had been working in art for some ten years, I began to notice that I felt as if I were doing what was “right” when I felt fractionally distanced from what I was making. I began to experience a kind of alive silence – I cannot say it more clearly – that was new to me. I was surprised. I felt there a subtle balance that had a neutrality dissociated from the passion that I had always thought must necessarily inform art. But by then I had developed respect for my instincts.”
