A new member of the Archetypal Expressionism Group/movement: Andrew Singer

Some thoughts on Archetypal Expressionism:

The mystery of redemption is quickened whenever an outside spark animates a vessel an artist is composing – i.e. constructing in temporal rhythm – the vessel is sealed and the work exists in the artistic equivalent of living. We are fallible, except where fallibility is eclipsed by texture or flux. Bodies are spiritual content in painted insignia. As Sun Bear tells us, in 1989 alone, 130 Peruvian politicians were killed. Thus are conceptual frameworks double-edged, and sometimes ill-advised. Even so, linear progress is underrated, as the present exhibit attests.
