ABOVE: A detail of one of Gerald Ferguson's recent frottage paintings in which he has been, technically-speaking 'under painting' (he puts rope or lengths of hose underneath a canvas and rolls paint to make a rubbing). Ferguson began using this technique after years of layering paintings by means of stenciled imagery. Photograph courtesy Gerald Ferguson.

ABOVE: A teacher with her class at the Chicago Art Institute in front of
Georges Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, 1884-1886. Pointillism's analysis is pseudo-scientific and even technically erroneous, and yet it produced marvelous art. (NOTE: this is a reference photograph. The Seurat work is, of course, not in the exhibition.)
ABOVE: Doug Lewis and salt block-licking horse. Lewis "de-layers" his materials.
