There is something impressive being said here. This is something really modern. We've been aware that painting is about perspective, about taking the three dimensional and representing it in a two-dimensional world. Ronald Davis has done that here, but in a much more impressive way. He's given us a piece that is the illusion of the illusion of depth. There is no pretending that this is three dimensional, but it is a representation of a two-dimensional representation of a three dimensional object. The depth is illusionary, as it is in all painting, but the incredible flatness is so different than the traditional methods of laying layer after layer of paint upon a canvas.
