"Artists now work with what is called conceptual methods and supposedly don’t use objects. But you can’t not use objects. A TV monitor is an object, a wall with a projection on it is the wall with a projection on it—it’s very much an object. I still see the stretched canvas, and I like seeing the stretched canvas. I don’t see the painting in perspective; I don’t believe that it looks like reality, that its perspective copies nature. I don’t believe that it’s removed nature; I think it is paint on canvas with a certain trick called perspective that is just a little trick." [full text [here](http://ensembles.mhka.be/items/3194)]
