What is being concealed and in what way?

Why do I like this?

Why do I hide, camouflage?

How do you signal to the audience?

How to make them self consciously bad?

Conceal/Reveal

What and How

Why?

What can we see under the cover?

Under what conditions can my work be seen?

Do something egregious 

Try do undo the things you naturally do

Make something as clear and transparent as possible

Ambiguity VS Clarity


Intention VS Reception

Work in the negative

Definitive Statements that have a purpose 

I am an artist and I refuse to commit.  
I hesitate and am profoundly ambivalent.  
This is my starting point and now I am lost, overwhelmed and my hesitation is crippling.  
Very little makes sense to me.
I hide behind my paintings, not allowing the viewer to see me standing at a distance as decoration, caring very little. 
I am nervous fractured and agreeable, overwhelmingly suspicious of everything that I see and everyone that I talk to.  
I am strategic and can see that you are too.  
My indecisiveness resonates through me and relays itself with precision.
