Stephen Prina in dialogue with Manet
"I’m just always thinking about Manet’s labor. He executed a certain amount of labor in the front of a canvas with some certain dimensions, and that I’m exercising a certain kind of labor, and it is parallel, but it results in a different kind of image. It may be abstract, but I’m of the generation that thinks that our abstraction isn’t a component of the representational."
