STATEMENT 2010: Unknown

This written statement could discuss issues including abstraction and representation, colour and texture, emptiness and detail, figure and ground, surface and depth, illusion and reality, the relationship between interior and exterior form, the different ways in which paint can be seen, the physical qualities of paintings as material objects, the everyday wonder of images, the history of art, and the mystery and beauty of things.  But the constructed and painted statement is the one I want to make; it cannot be translated exactly into words.
