Quote

“Gonzalez-Torres finds and mobilizes materials which may function as analogues for experience and emotions which are not ‘explained’ in any extended biographical supplementary exegesis. They are works about love, desire, loss, death, and mourning, and much of their extraordinary power derives from the artist’s refusal to retreat into didacticism.” Simon Watney Parkett No. 39, 1994
