Painting 2: Repetition

A couple of years ago when I was studying industrial design in New York, I had a hazelnut cappuccino from Mike’s coffee shop for the first time. I found it so delicious that for the next 3 years, at 4pm exactly, I would cut class and treat myself together with a cigarette. Anyone who knows me well enough knows that this scenario is likely and that I am not making this stuff up.
Its true, I like routines.
There is something very comforting about knowing what lies ahead of you.
But things do change. I moved from New York and I quit smoking. However, the love affair with routine and repetition has only grown.
Painting 2 has been a psychological trip, and I see a lot my own idiosynchrasies shaping up this painting, like repetition: numerous concentric rings, the repetitive planes jutting out, curves multiplying themselves, the consecutive MDF slats, the lot, as you can see from the detail below.
Yours truly,
Rainman
