THE TASK OF PAINTING is to address the question, “what is painting, what can painting do?” Paint and the act of painting insists on voluptuous contact. I need to make voluptuous contact. Disembodiment is at the source of my alienation and our destruction.
AS A CULTURE we are damaged by disembodiment. The corrective I seek is voluptuous embodied encounter. I need to touch, feel, crawl through color and the prolonged experience of sensual engagement. Painting can do that.
