Works > That Which Can't Be Played

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?
