Catalogue Note

"Light and water in combination has been both a painting condition and a spiritual condition. A body in water changes shape: it's distorted, it wavers, its edges become less clear. It is a metaphor for transformation."

Eric Fischl (Arthur C. Danto, Robert Enright, Steve Martin, Eric Fischl 1970 - 2000, The Monacelli Press, New York, p. 166)
