Titles or numbers?
It seems like an age ago since I finished a canvas. Still looking for a title though. 🤔
I always titled my work with numbers but they seem too impersonal now. I don’t like the ‘production feel’ (as in mass production) numbers give and they reduce all the time I worked on the painting to just a number whereas a title can add another layer to the painting... on the other side it saves time and energy I can spend on making other work or studies. Maybe I should see the title as part of the work, I mean really a part of the work like the way I see the frame as a part of the work. So what are your thoughts, numbers or titles?
