'A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.'
-Gertrude Stein

'I guided you on Geryon
Shall I do less now we are nearer God?'

-Dante’s Divine Comedy

How would I paint you? I would not be able to paint you entirely. I would have to paint something fragmented and incomplete. And there would be a lot of uncertainty. I would also only have access to that part of you that is in me, and hope that you would come through in some way. Could repetition help me with this? I imagine you to be a moving being, but paradoxically, because you are outside time and I perceive movement in time, you would be still too. So, I think painting is a good way in which to attempt this communion with you. It would have to be on more than one piece of board, probably many, and it would be a lifetime project, maybe requiring more than one lifetime. It would only ever be a glimpse or a taste of you, maybe just enough for me to remember who you are.
