All I Know (Ark)

1989
In this painting, a river landscape - sky, bank, flowing water - is the background for images that suggest the artist's preoccupations at the time of his second marriage. Some motifs are ambiguous, like the black shape that is based on an X-ray of the bones of a foot; others have associations that many can share, like the starry night sky or the word "diamond."
