“Brown Things”

This is possibly the most abstract piece of art I’ve ever made (unless the shapes are simply the disorganized features of a Mr. Potato Head.) This brief book (can it be called that) also indicates an early interest in the thingness of the thing. Seriously, though, I had of course completely forgotten about making this, yet later had a brown period, a fascination with the neutral/earth/shit quality of the color, which has since then grown into a fascination with beige. Besides the primary colors, what color besides brown can be called the perfect color for a child artist, this mix of all colors? Brown is the color out of which all living things spring, and into which they all resolve.
