Excerpt from Non Multa Sed Multum by Roland Barthes: “Unlike many of today’s painters, TW shows us his gestures. We are not asked to view, think, or savor the product, but rather to review, to identify, and, one would even like to hazard, 'to play' the movement that has taken place precisely there, in precisely that space.”
