That Which Can't Be Played is an ongoing set of paintings that respond to Composition 8F (To Composer John Cage) from Anthony Braxton's album For Alto as a catalyst with which to meditate on the limits of one's breath. At what point can a single inhalation, and its corresponding outward blow, provide an alternative understanding of the distance between the end and a beginning, between abstraction and representation, between what one is allowed to do and what ones desires to do?
