Minneapolis artist Peter Gaustad

This just in from Peter Gaustad. He’s thinking about the “in between” painting and drawing. His images take me inside a film script or story board. I always like the movie. On the phone today Peter and I talked about de Certeau’s “story time.” Speaking of “practical memory” at work in ordinary speech de Certeau writes. “The oddest thing is no doubt the mobility of this memory in which details are never what they are: they are not objects, for they are elusive as such; not fragments, for they yield the ensemble they forget; not totalities, since they are not self-suffcient; not stable, since each recall alters them.” The Practice of Everyday Life (88)

This drawing seems like ordinary speech.
