Kim Krause ponders Philip Guston's painting Signals, 1975, in the collection of the Cincinnati Art Museum.
Krause writes: "the painting presents a visual paradox of the artist’s inseparability of knowing/not knowing; the painting as result, sum, residue of action and real-time experience. Planning and execution become intertwined. Process and object become fused. It is a display of virtuosity and recklessness in the pursuit of truth. We become the explored and the explorer; simultaneously lost and found within the authentic."
