This painting comes from an exhibition called Kingdom of Names. Kim Neudorf, who wrote the exhibition catalogue, had this to say about the work: “Another painting, outside, communicates a reflexive awareness of its all-out bias towards texture. A coexistence of watercolour, salt and paper, outside is cut through with the wide berth of descending (or ascending) zigzag line—a line which seems to deliberately celebrate rather than downplay the multiple painterly effects of its ground.”
