When we are taught to ask for directions in what we are to think, what we are to say and what we are to do, we run into a figurative bind of being stuck in uncreativity and the superficiality of a surface. Heino Schmid’s work does not fit into any of these unthinking paradigms. As I walked through his show “wait. I saw something,” which opened at the D’Aguilar Art Foundation on Thursday, February 8th, I had to think about the work. The work is not trouble-free art that covers a wall or adorns a room with its ease of access and prettiness, but an abstraction that made me think about many things.
