the destruction of art

Barnett Newman's "who is afraid..." and "cathedra" both cut up in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam some time ago.
The destruction of art & the art of destruction aren't two sides of the same coin. Trying to evoke the destructive element in creating art is difficult. Creating drawings is a quite positive act and perhaps a positive belief. It can be done with negative feelings like being bored, feeling ugly, stupid, lazy, ill, sad and mad. Working with destruction is a sentiment difficult to make clear. Destruction as part of creating new drawings. Violence and vandalism should be part of the final drawing. Soon I expect to make it clear.
