Catalogue Note

"I think of the painted picture as an embodiment of the very problem that we face with the notion of 'reality.' The problem or question is, which reality? In a painted picture, is it the depicted reality, or the reality of the picture plane, or the multidimensional reality the artist and viewer exist in? That all three are involved points to the fact that all pictures are inherently problematic." Mark Tansey
