Notes to self: We think we remember what we see, when we look at paintings, when we visit large galleries - there is so much to see. Then there is a grappling, a trying to recollect. Glance at a wall and see the colours, the sensation of the paintings and how they are together and apart as individual works made over years. Walk from room to room, encounter your own personal memory of what painting is or can be. Attempt to forget what it is you want to say because saying is no longer what painting is about. Painting, if it has to be about anything, is about painting. And yet the playful shapes and colours, the textures of collage and the knowing hints do not make paintings at all - they suggest painting as it might be in a dream, but never really happened/happens.
