Untitled (How Does It Feel), Esau McGhee at Goldfinch

"Esau McGhee's works on paper steadfastly refuse acts of classification by any single medium, genre, style, or process. Although his most recent pieces comprise painted marks on collaged screen prints and a variety of other found and re-used papers, McGhee does not consider them paintings. Or rather, he recommends we think of them as paintings to the same extent that they are also sculptures, and also graffiti, and also collages, and also photographs made by and through the artist's own body, without the use of a camera."
