a favourite quote, lost for years and found again.

Adam Chodzko in Art Review, July / August 2003

‘”I’ve made this and this and this.” they say, indicating apparently disparate art objects, “but I can’t see how they relate.” So I try to encourage them to intuit what, abstractly, this missing connection might be and tell them how this elusive link is their blind spot and this is where their desire to express will come from. And it will continue to drive them to keep creating, although always remaining their blind spot, but one encircled by an ever-tightening (if they’re good at it) constellation of art objects. Although like Zeno’s arrow, never coinciding absolutely.’
