"It seems that I have 3 worlds. This home – where we have no trouble much, active, working, building – living. We all seem to love it. But it all depends on the commercial studio work – which seems dead – no future and a shove. And I love it too – but I don’t seem to stay there much. ... Then the painting world.* More and more this becomes absorbing. I find it difficult to relate these 3 worlds. Maybe, tho’, like the areas in a painting – they are complete entities in themselves – but related by the space separating them?… *This crazy, fascinating, fantastic world of make believe, I don’t understand it. Is it real? In one way it is – but I keep trying to back out of it. No I don’t, I keep pushing deeper in."
• Jack Bush, diary (9 August 1957)
I decided to make some variations from Jack Bush's works, namely from Big A, done in November 1968.
