Catalogue Note

"I often say when we are grouped as California artists that it has a characteristically false premise. Since there is only one art world or one painting world, as far as I'm concerned, it's like referring to California painting like referring to 'California mathematics' or 'California science.' I feel much more general and very deeply interested in the whole tradition of painting, which is my love."
