Pae White at greengrassi


(link)

like nature, White's both immaculate and arbitrary, rearrangeable, customizable for your space. It has no turf but program that expandable to fit your needs, almost printable. White could make 400 of these of every size, and they would all be equally beautiful, lovely. This puts her in line with most painting made in the last 20(?) years, modes that already contain their expression and are run like programs. I guess the difference is these look like my Grandma's quilts compressed into jewels, like Babylonian cylinder seals you can roll out their patterns to any length, threatening a mass production of precious moments.
