    The interpretation of a painting is how the viewer adapts their life to act differently as a result of seeing it, being in its space Taken this way, the essays here are completely confused about what to do with the art Crutches, everywhere personal history of the artist, psychoanalysis, the dreaded artist s timeline, placement within against other movements in art, portraits as avatars of subjectivity, etc There s barely any talk of the technique, and what the how of the paintings can tell us For me, the paintings are terrifying and inspiring, luscious and awkward, and moving than de Kooning, or Basquiat, but maybe not Schiele Like ice on delicate skin, you do get used to not being used to it.
