Item description for Mystery of Painting, The: Goetz Collection by Bernhard Schwenk Beth Coleman...

At various points in this past century, painting has been pronounced dead, painters have been plagued by self-doubt, the act of painting has been equated with the flogging of a dead horse, and the art of painting has been reduced to the separate ingredients of color, ground, and brushstroke. Yet each of the painters included in The Mystery of Painting treats their art form as an emancipated, proud medium that neither calls for a conceptual apology nor for external justification. Linked not by a uniform style but by a common attitude, their pictures are not images of the world but about the world. From Matthew Ritchie's scientific mythologies to Karen Kilimnik's piercingly pretty portraits, from Chris Ofili's cross-cultural collages to Laura Owens's expansive doodles of flora and fauna, The Mystery of Painting may not be such a mystery after all.
