The Past Just Walked In The Door, refers to the compositional ideas accumulated in almost 60 years of playing with stuff, mostly but not exclusively paint, both oil and acrylic. It also refers to the accumulated paint on this canvas, started 15 or so years ago as a very textured painting. There are about a dozen layers of paint to arrive at this luscious background colour to which various collaged items and paint were added. And ,of course, the collaged oil painted block of intense inferences. There is also the rule/almost drafted line that sets the composition. Note that the two ends of the line are drawn back towards that block of intensity.
