I always stop listening when people say about an artwork, 'that is so simple' – like the black square of Malevich, or the exquisite monochromes of Kelly, for example. I simply find that dumb. A total disregard for the story behind it, the often complex way leading up to that simplicity. I am no where near that level of crystallized craftmanship I think, but it is nice to notice that in two 'simple' strokes, with two layers of paint, one can make a convincing canvas. That counts for some grade of development I guess. (Pictured Wei V).
