Man Digging is a collection of open images. Open in the sense that they have not already been locked into tight narratives or descriptive verisimilitude, they are open too because the motif, or the process, might require of the painter that it be later re-explored or further turned-over. Is painting like digging? Not really. Although the studio, like the vegetable patch, requires constant attention, and its activities can be rudimentary or repetitious, and yet through these analogous actions new and surprising things emerge.
