The thing that confounds us

You know we want to look at paintings. If you walk into a group show your eye doesn’t go to the thing you understand, it doesn’t go the the thing you like – I love apples. That’s a fantastic painting of apples. I can almost taste them! – We don’t do that. It’s the thing that confounds us. You know, What the hell is that? Why would anyone do that? That is so fucked up, you know. And you look at it. And you think about it and sometimes that’s really the stuff… If there’s something we are going to love… that’s going to be the route to it.
