    Azospin`s journal ~ Update No 20 "transformer" ~ March 9th



    Hello!

    Now this is the starting point for my journal. I plan to use it as a place to show more or less (rather more) finished pieces of series, that I will post then later in the finished section as a whole, as soon as they are complete and other stuff I am working on, but maybe won`t show in the finished section, so I produce a lot but rarely sketches. And like all the others here I am looking for substantial and profound critic on my work, the same as I will give as far as I am able and willing to.

    Here now the first two small pieces out of one of my first colored series, so I worked for about 7 years more or less exclusively b/w, to develop and explore the possibilities of constructing diverse forms out of single lines, circuits and cycles. I think it is always good to concentrate first on the lines before you go into colors, ... wouldn`t you agree on that. For the moment I work with a quite small scale of colors. Will I keep it like that? Do not know... time will tell, as Bob said.

    Thanks for visiting

    joseph

    P.S.: I like this place a lot and hope you will like my comments and work too, although I am quite aware of, that at least my work is a little bit from outside. ...

    Edit 2008-03-02: So English is not my mother-tongue I`d ask you to blame it on me when encountering difficulties in understanding my texts. I try to improve, not the least by hanging around here.



    The works shown are ink (ball-pen) and markers on paper, original size is 19 * 12 cm (7,84 * 4,72 inches)

    Sketches?

    Well, I am afraid I can not come after that wish, ... not that I was too shy or would not want to show sketches, it is simply impossible, due to the fact that these do not really exist. I usually do not sketch, means I do draw pencil-guidelines for long straight lines, circles,etc,of course, but I do not sketch the whole figure in one. I develop these figures in a way line by line or in layers resp. "orbits".

    But I will give an example in form of a drawing as attachment (is part of the series mentioned above), which is in a quite proceeded state, but not finished in regard to the lines/figure/scene, so the guidelines I placed are still to see. The main figure is constructed out of two circuits, means two single lines, that close together in the end, but will be complemented by several "smaller" ones, mainly circles. Then I choose and start with colors.


    It is a rather large file so that the pencil-lines can be seen. Original size is 43 * 28 cm (16,83 * 11,02 inches), tool is a ball-pen (ink).

    Another so far finished piece of the series. Maybe define a working title for this series? Let`s call it "Messier 104".

    Title(s) of this sheet could be

    - "Maybe a good place for an orange planet?"
    - "Flying sepulture"
    - "Is that perhaps a near relative?"
    - "We are now in position to grab it, Sir...."

    I will see to choose one, although I personally see no need in doing that, so I do construct my figures concurrently from several points of view like architecture, sci-fi, biology, physics, mythology, religion and philosophy. Not, that I would be firm in all that subject areas, not at all, but I have an eye on them as far as my time, interest and first and foremost my ability reaches.

    But maybe you have a favourite? As maybe a lot of people I do not have a problem with finding matching titles, but it is always hard to choose ONE. Gallery guy:" You have to choose one, better short and clear title. People expect that!".... brrrr

    original size is 28 * 18 cm (11,02 * 7,09 inches), ink (ball-pen) and markers on paper

    Another almost finished sheet for "Messier 104"

    Possible titles:

    -"Hush-hush: Gaya is in easy circumstances tonight!"
    -"We take tea on the patio, Herbert!"
    -"As soon as one god thinks he is the only one all the others die laughing"

    .....more will follow I suppose/fear.


    By the way: I might have a problem with my scanner/display, so the FARBABFALL (german), the difference in color-intensity is increasing... would not be a surprise, so that stuff is not the best.... you know poor artist, how romantic, aaah.

    Green, blue and brown is not jet fixed on paper. Makes sense for the moment, but depends on the development/evolution of the whole series, whether I choose them finally.

    original size is 29 * 29 cm (11,42 * 11,42 inches), ink..... etc.

    Have fun, and never go outside without a towel, as you all know for sure...

    Well, I do not pretend that I can draw in a way most of those here around can. How could I. I can`t draw. But nevertheless a pencil, in my case a ball-pen, is my favorite tool, so I think I can handle it in my way. To my understandings I "write", when I do works like these below, which are "written" in one take and very fast, without any correction or addition. Whenever I start to draw, I fail. But I think, that sheets like these have in a way a "load", that makes them worth showing even here, where people can draw.

    What do you mean?

    Your work is unusual and quite fascinating, Joseph. It seems that you have great patience, and a clear focus on what you want to achieve, particularly with your geometric designs.

    There's nothing else for it... I'll need to give you five stars : )

    Keep up the excellent work

    Thanks a lot man, you made my day, I mean my night, my Saturday-night... was yet a bit insecure about me posting here, means I feared that my focus, which is indeed the rather specific geometric part of my work, might be a bit too, negatively spoken, narrow.

    Had a quick look trough your sketchbook and had to laugh out loud several times.... will have a closer look soon, so there are these relief-designs fascinating me in particular... but for now, ... Saturday!

    Back home, 4 a.m., had some martinis, time to post some work........

    They have something in common. These specific four "contain" problems I work on. That is good!

    Have a great time,
    joseph

    These sheets shown are in a way experimental, so I started to work in this direction just some month ago and these are some examples of the results so far.

    I use deckle edged paper, draw and engrave the designs, complemented by cycles cut out of felt, then I pour or trickle thinned ink on them (or douse them as a whole) and then (with a straw) "dose" the thickness of the ink resp. the color strength over the period of drying, by air, with a straw. In addition to ink I use also materials like sugar, salt or even spicery to receive highlights (and aroma....). The idea of engraving, which is central, was inspired by etching, a print-method I started to work with/learn about it in 2007.

    In a way this kind of working sometimes gives me the feeling like me being an old alchemist running danger to go nuts...... emerge, Lord of the Darkness!!!,.... like that.

    The contents criss-cross more or less superficially somewhere in-between sci-fi, mythology/mysticism and fairy tale, like most of my work does.

    Hope you like it,
    joseph

    I think he is raw, and in a way I envy him, so he did live maybe without any moment of ennui..... I sometimes have the feeling, that most of us believe that humans, that lived long before "our history" began just did hang around starring at the fire, waiting for the splendid future to come ..... Can you imagine how suspending, full of permanent tension life must have been in truth, when guys like him did run on earth!

    This piece is form 2004, a period I did a couple of these long stretched designs. At that time I did still work without any kind of pencil-guidelines ..... obvious. Looking at it now it appears rather awkward and instable to me... maybe would not want to be crew-member on that "ship"....would you? At least as long as the mission is more important than to fly to planet Ibiza...

    Original size is 70 * 32 cm (27,56 * 12,6 inches), ink on paper

    I like your geometric designs...you seem to be quite fascinated by shapes
    and how they link together..
    one questions..have you never had any interest in drawing anything else?

    I like what you have done, dont get me wrong. just curious...
