Corday rolls over in her grave.  There is nothing new, or at least there is nothing new to try.  The coffin walls shrink in a bit, expand in a wrong direction, only to shrink again.  Confinement, then release--the act of painting, the tiny death of showing.  Above her, the world continues, caring less and less about this wretched fate.  With each attempt towards memory, another failure, another beheading.
 
There's nothing specific, but the paintings will be a bit reflective of the endgame of painting that was reached by some in the minimalist project.  One question that comes up is how is it possible to make anything new, especially in abstraction?  Who cares?  A beheading in abstraction should be welcomed.  These artifacts are missing a few parts or perhaps they hold the memory of a form.  Again, who cares?
