The promise of painting, especially abstract painting, has to do with its ability to take us into various models of the world. Each painter attempts to delineate a specific perspective on how matter is organized, how space is allotted, how color and light, depth and viscosity work to establish standards for understanding how the universe affects us. Each of the artists participating in “Some (Are) Painting” has achieved a level of mature investigation into such matters and succeed in manifesting a reality which accrues while it adds both truth and beauty to the already known, making the sensible fantastic and the useful a dream on its own terms.
