  • Catalogue Essay

    "I think that these paintings on velvet are very different than the plate paintings. They’re much more feminine paintings, in a way...The fur, or the velvet… The correlations to the subjective collective! The collective modern ideas about what materials exist in the world, where they fit, have a way of cueing us as to where we fit. In terms of where we are, what we think about, memory." Julian Schnabel
