  • Catalogue Essay

    I think that an abstract painting is actually more figurative than a figurative painting, because it frequently is closer to the thing it is depicting. If you paint a red square, you have a red square of a certain measurable dimension. If you paint a vase of flowers, the vase of flowers is not measurable, more abstract than the red square.
    (Jennifer Bartlett, in conversation with Elizabeth Murray, BOMB Magazine, Fall 2005)
