Paintings inhabit the world in ways, through time, reference, and ambience, that are distinct from the workings of film and photography. Even realistic paintings hover about, unattached to their referents. Paintings then, like ghosts, confront viewers through their impact and haunt them through excluded information, they conjure an absence, which ferments attachments and invites future visitations. This group of oils, acrylics, egg temperas, and watercolors, are the result of this ellusive quality of paintings.
