Quote

"…Quaytman has emphasized the chapter’s relational aspect: “one response seriality provides, is to situate primary legibility outside the boundaries of the individual unit,” and “When I make paintings, I think of them firstly as images that can be placed next to other images.”

Rhea Anastas, Parkett 90

About

“When I make paintings, I think of them firstly as images that can be placed next to other images,” explains R. H. Quaytman. This approach relates to her practice as a whole, as well–she works in successive “chapters,” where each new series relates to the preceding series. In this lithograph on a stainless steel plate, she represents her modus operandi by depicting stacked recursive canvases and titling the work “Proclitic," an adjective used to describe words that are so closely connected in pronunciation that they are pronounced together, such as, “t’was.” -Artspace
