Personally, I don’t think paintings are very interesting as ideas.
Ideas are not interesting in and of themselves.
In many ways the culture of simplifying art into language (ideas) is a platform for engaging large groups.
Working with art through language is a way of separating oneself from the action via the interface.
Ideas are an interface, a glossy model. They are unreal. They disconnect us from mystery and exploration, from life.
I want to be lost, to get lost.
