The series Polar Coordinates for Ronnie Peterson was another tough one for me to learn to like, but now I love them. Somehow, the two layer structure, combined with the busyness of the “ground” layer, has some relevance to the fact that they are an homage to a deceased friend of the artist. And that awakens my own strong feelings about the meaning of work. Great expressiveness struggles through the geometry.
One is good, so two are better. Again I realize that the work that moves me the deepest is hard to see at first. An instinctive dislike is a good indicator of emerging quality.
