Although interesting the analysis seems to forget about the destruction of the painterly ambition through the subversion of photographic medias, need to dominate the narrative on discussions of surface and gesture.

Paintings deferrence to this post modernist message is at the core of its problems. It needs to let its articulated intelligent evolution embrace all its historical development. It is after all the parent in the ralationship unlike the childlike Post modernist narrative, which has a fundamental need to reference, bind, and indoctrinate the process of the painter. The painter can then only create pastiche rather than painting that evolves intelligently and independently.
