To Divert Awareness and be Part of the Streaming Consciousness
In memory of Artist John Byle (Detroit, USA 1928 – Tel Aviv, Israel 2015)
To plan and thereafter to paint – is a way to achieve a preconceived idea.
To paint as if it were a journey to the unknown, an inner need, a non-voluntary adventure – is a non-way.
John Byle chose to explore the non-way.
The painting is the result of exploring a non-defined process of creating.
A path of rushing discoveries, inner and external.
Lines and colour fields follow a disharmonious communication: counteracting, conquering, trespassing, and struggling.
Some are dirty and some others remain within monochromatic borders.
Lines and fields are in angular and animated rhythms moved by a fervent physical gesture and mental energy.
No frontiers; No spatial directions; No residues of time.
The artist becomes the archaic hunter hunted by his own stamina.
Acting out of his primordial instincts.
Inspired by civilization.
