Since my last newsletter mentioning that I am the feature artist for this quarterly international journal CYBERNETICS & HUMAN KNOWING, people have asked me what it’s all about.
Here is a quote from the journal describing my work:
“The artist for this issue, Enda Bardell, paints in two very different modes; views of the outside as evocative landscapes, and views from the inside as abstracts. The latter are featured in this issue.
These inner views arise for Enda as clear visions, complete with shape and colour. As these visions immediately begin to fade, she has learned to quickly make a sketch, and then later manifest them as paintings. One of her pleasure in these paintings is ambiguity, ambiguity within the structure of the painting, and ambiguity of what each person sees. Thus, Enda, like many artists, works from an implicit and intuitive instantiation of second order cybernetics.”
