Covering in Painting

“That’s the whole process of being able to cover. Because you never conceal, you never really cover. It’s so much like having extra vision. No matter what you cover, you see all of what you cover, whereas the person who is looking will only see the last thing you did. But all of the stuff that came from beneath that is all the stuff that makes whatever eventually is the result…”  –Raymond Saunders, 2012, [1:27:37]
