STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2011, GALLERY PIECE (WIRE)
When I miss you, I will set my finger against the eye of the socket,
elongate my finger-tip, through the socket, through the wires,
through the fuse boxes, through the transformer cabinets, through the
power stations, through the trans atlantic cables, through the trans
pacific cables, through the power stations, through the transformer
cabinets, through the fuse boxes, through the wires, through the
socket, my finger-tip elongated, to you.

STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2010, GALLERY PIECE (ABSTRACT PAINTING)
I once showed works that consisted of framed canvasses cast in
Plaster of Paris. These paintings were very beautiful, immaculately
white, and very fragile. They sold well, but buyers kept complaining
that the works were so very hard to keep clean. My assistent then had
them sprayed with a protective layer to keep them from soiling. The
covering was absolutely invisible, but when the artist discovered
that the works were so changed, she withdrew the whole series and
went into partnership with another gallery. Ironically, the next
series she made was cast not in Plaster of Paris, but in titanium.

STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2010, GALLERY PIECE (HAIR)
I find that my appearance reflects the mode of art I show. When I do
pictorial work, I have my hair loose, or even set curls. When doing
abstracts, I wear my hair restrained, pulled back tightly, like the
suffering Joan of Arc.

STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2011, GALLERY PIECE (AXIS)
There is one show I remember very vividly, although the show was just
the one day, I never showed the artist again, and the whole show
consisted of one single work. The artist demanded that the gallery
space be dimmed to a very specific level of illumination, to which
end extremely expensive equipment had to be brought in. When the work
was set up, one ruby-red line of laser light stretched from one end
of the room to the other, at crotch height. To be sure, there was
actually nothing much to see. But if you and I were to both intercept
the light, we would be mysteriously and irresistably drawn together.
I think of this show every day.
