#PublicationOfTheWeek “As if it were” by David Barton
In this title, artist and poet David Burton invites us to look closer at his art.
In the artist words;
“Everything I touch when working relates to the human body. If I put two forms adjacent to each other they become arms enclosing a torso or the space between arms and torso; and the torso itself becomes a creative space promising new life. When I touch the paper with a pen or brush I am urging the space to receive me with the marks I make and take control, so that the space becomes the torso and a dialogue can begin.
I realize that my contribution; marks, ideas, intentions in themselves are worthless, and that if I am to discover anything they will be just raw material to be either discarded or transformed. The page on which I work is already a torso, a belly waiting to accept the self I throw away.
My task is to pay attention to the responses from the work itself, examining the clues it offers, accepting its gifts and pursuing its promises ever further; stepping again into nothingness.”
David has publication in libraries including Tate Galleries London and Liverpool, Museum of Modern Art New York, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and the archive of Atelier Vis.
