Let the barrier come down between image and material, pictorial space and the flatbed picture plane. Touch, play, accept, reject. Let the photograph, the print, disrespect tradition so that a new baby can be born from many disciplines—painting, digital imaging, assemblage, installation, animation, and video. Let literature, trash, femininity, motherhood, the beauty myth, selfhelp psychology, the overlooked, and humor be exalted. Seize the means of production—material and digital, as well as the history of pictures, particularly painting and photography. Look carefully at the overlooked, because it is laden with hidden seeds. The undervalued hiding in plain sight, humorous and elegant in its pathos of contemporary life.
