Catalogue Note

I don’t think painting ever changed the course of history. Its function is to do something positive to our lives. I guess it would involve pleasure and satisfaction, a sense of completeness that life itself doesn’t have.  Order.  You take the elements of reality, but you eliminate the chaos.

– Richard Estes
