DEAR MOUNTAIN

I am going to imitate you using this pencil and paper. There is nothing you can do to stop me. Watch this. A tree a cloud a few flicks of graphite.

, looks like a photograph!    

begin with the beach and move toward making an image out of pencil and paper as an imitation, an image for the mind, transportable in space and time, portable experience. 

Begin with the image, a stamp, ink on paper and move toward making the image back, aiming it back to the beach itself. 

Representation, imitation using the elements of the thing itself to represent itself. Least imitative and most representative of itself. 

posessing the beach, commodity, imitation for other minds...

OBJECT BECOMES ART, ART BECOMES OBJECT

Your truly,

The Artist
