Anselm Kiefer

                I have been working on a series called Fertile Geometry. At the start I looked at the landscape paintings of Anselm Kiefer . These are large paintings that I still respond to even at the size above. He paints the fragility of our constructions insisting on pointing to primal sensory experience realized in this group by looking to the earth with its furrows.Apart from the gestures of anxiety in the brushstrokes, the receding lines of the plowed earth suggest fears of the future and its contingencies.
