In A Way to Be in the World, Chris Ashley writes about painter Douglas Witmer's Fruitville and School Papers works.

Ashley writes: " As in [Witmer's] paintings, where their making is evident, so too in these works Witmer hides nothing; there are no tricks - the skill is in the decisions and finding, the combining and positioning, the addition or intervention. There is beauty and rigor in the finished artworks, and there is also something beautiful and rigorous in how and why Witmer works."

Douglas Witmer: I Found a Reason is on view at at Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Rollins College, Winter Park FL through October 9, 2011.
