Another study of surface representation. Under-painting is a back lit hanging curtain. Over-painting is of relatively calm water surface reflections. The combination is a representation of a surface that is somewhat reflective, somewhat transparent, somewhat obscuring, somewhat revealing. A combination of visual references – meant to be almost recognized but not entirely. Looking for the between. Between representation and non-representation. Between reflection and transmittance. Between the instant (present) and past (recording).

Who knows… maybe. It was fun to paint.
