Sun and shadows ...

just showed up, on a newer version of the untitled figure/ground ... (Must remember that Manet and Braque show us what blacks and browns can do and for whites: Joan Mitchell, Cy Twombly, and Julie Mehretu) ... When I see these overlays of sunlight and shadows, it makes me wonder: the painted figure and ground, the object and its setting, are here covered over by patches of sunlight which is, in turn, covered over by the shadows of the brushes... where is figure and ground now?
