Great post: Deborah Barlow comments on an exchange between painter Sean Scully and critic Robert Hughes who discuss the slowness of painting compared to other media. She quotes Scully: "The way a painting seems to work in the culture is very slowly and subliminally. It is almost dormant on the wall—you can walk right by and ignore it. But every time you come back to it, it lights up, it reengages." Barlow includes a link to the video.
