Catalogue Note

"There comes the final period when you enter into struggle with it. It taunts you; it dares you to force it to behave, to make it be 'right.' A painting might be finished, that is, the support may be adequately covered with paint, the handling of the medium may display a proficiency with materials, yet the painting does not seem done. That mysterious sense of order and balance has not yet been attained." Mike Kelley
