Queer Thing, Painting

Hier ist ein Zitat aus Amy Sillman / Gregg Bordowitz: Between Artists:

And regarding shame, I used to have this theory that people who painted in layers were like shoplifters. Concealing things on your body is sort of what you’re doing when you make painting, because you’re always covering up earlier layers and the paintings go out into the world with little secrets or messages, or little secret phalluses or fetishes, kind of buried inside the layers I guess I have a really complex relationship to paintings emotionally. It’s agressive, I’m fighting a lot, and maybe you can sense all of that, too.

Ein Interview mit Gregg Bordowitz unter anderem über Amy Sillmans Bilder gibt es bei Bad at Sports. Das Buch namens „Queer Thing, Painting“ (1938) von Walter Pach gibt es bei Archive.org zum download.
