Economic Observer
Brexit Deadline Nears

Overview: Over the past week, news about the British exit from the European Union (Brexit) caused some volatility, but had little net effect. The economic data also had a minor impact, and mortgage rates ended the week nearly unchanged.

After a lack of success for over three years, lawmakers are still racing to agree to a Brexit plan before the scheduled separation date of October 31. The latest proposal was rejected by the British Parliament this week, and there is not enough time to put together a new one before the end of the month. Since neither EU nor UK officials want the uncertainty created by a departure with no deal in place, many analysts expect that another extension to the deadline will be seen.

The latest data from the housing sector contained mixed news. In September, sales of existing homes fell a little more than expected from August, but still were 4% higher than a year ago. The national median existing-home price was up 6% from a year ago. A lack of homes for sale in many regions again held back sales activity. Inventory levels nationally were at a 4.1-month supply and were 3% lower than a year ago.

Regarding future supply, overall housing starts in September fell 9% from August. However, the surprisingly strong reading seen last month was the highest since June 2007, so a significant decline this month had been anticipated. In addition, the weakness was entirely due to volatile multi-family units, while single-family starts increased from August.


Week Ahead

INTO THE LIGHT by John K. Grande

A great contemplative, an artist who fuses light with colour, Fusako Ekuni has taken on the challenge of projecting our soul’s eternal perceptual connectivity to something very simple – light. Colours are treated with an instinct, the ritual inherent to Fusako Ekuni’s paintings involve the physics of the process itself. The slow process, the seeming point of emergence or disappearance these perpetual, eternal, changeable colour flows embody are less like paintings than beatific slow motion reifications of the physics of life…
These paintings are homages to the pre-verbal universe, where the invisible forces of life - colour and light – interact magically, seemingly invisibly. The artist is the medium. Like the Spanish Surrealist Juan Miro, Fusako Ekuni is producing several paintings simultaneously. At different stages of completion, each painting can take months until the colours complete their harmonic journey into completion. The artist is an eternal seeker.
For 18 years, Fusako Ekuni has moved from a traditional Japanese art style to explore a more fluid process that involves layering pure dry pigment and glue, placing these elements intuitively onto board to produce works that embody a feeling of slow flow… The colours relate as people do, one to the other, in a perpetual slow flow. A particular particularized, sub-atomic beingness associated with light is what results. This interest in the physics of light is ever present in Fusako Ekuni’s Into the Light series. Like James Turrell’s Roden Crater project in the Arizona Desert, the content in Fusako Ekuni’s art is ultimately this existential interaction between our eye’s perception and colour light compositions that always seem to be at a point of change.
Fusako’s sense of light and colours as elements in and for themselves an artist works with recall the American painter Richard Pousette-Dart’s painterly explorations. Art becomes a source where the ideas are simply phenomena, visual and colourful. Light is the binding medium the colours interact with. The sense of simple presence and absence, of feelings and emotions likewise recalls Mark Rothko’s contemplative colour compositions. One colour next to another colour, overlapping or meeting, becomes a topography of feelings, of placement… it is all in these words, Fusako Ekuni’s sense of immediacy, of the moment, of how colour is perceived before we read its forms – as colour - in light.
