Sam Richardson hit the nail on the head with this one. It's about process, and it's observation. We only get the little piece, but there is much beneath, the majority. This is a total denial of a formalist analysis of art. It is not what's in the work; it is what's beneath it, hiding, waiting.
The thing that happens in my mind about this is that I understand something about icebergs. They are islands of ice, floating, untethered. If you climb on to a small, or even a medium one, it is highly possible that you could tip, slide, even roll completely over, into the frigid waters, trapped beneath its weight.
Delving into art analysis can be just that dangerous.
