DEBORAH KASS — PAINTING AND SCULPTURE

The resonance with this work is that so many can identify with it. Identity is a noun. It is what you are. It’s how you come out of your mother. But when you identify with something outside of yourself, it’s active. It’s a verb. That’s how you start constructing who you are as a subject, a person—internally, emotionally, spiritually—and imagining how you can be in the world. Now people say, “If you can see it you can be it.” This is the very meaning of inspiration. — Deborah Kass*
