    “And sometimes it is about something barely there, the minimum of information, something turned inward. The canvas pushes past full color, now ashen, bleached, fainting, fading in and fading out. Cleaving, a great gap, a crevice opens, things flood in. There is the damp stain of the artist’s body pressed against the canvas—in heat. And then there is dark, charcoal black, like kohl, like mascara, smeared, smudged—some strange sooty trouble. It is everything from the inside out, a cool membrane, like acetate anatomy pages piling up, building a person, arteries and organs, the surface of the skin, the peel of an onion.” (A.M. Holmes, Cecily Brown, New York, 2000, pp 68-69)
