“I paint to make notation of my being in the world. Notation is a neutral act. Painting is a neutral act. Being is rarely neutral. I seek the space between the known and the unknown to find the place where I can paint without intent. A neutral space where recognition of states of being are recognized and noted.” — Connie van Rijn
