“Through various painterly alterations, she fills within the what-ifs with idiosyncratic details which make the unknown values all of a sudden known&hellip just how can painting more than a blown-up picture of the stranger really hook you up together? I believe, considering the way we see the people we all do know, what colors and lights we cast upon them, it’s not every that different–in fact, it appears pretty valid. We’re taking photos and painting them over everyday in our lives, seeing what you want to see, hiding the reality, to see what’s not there inside a fevered play at finding something out about ourselves that people understood all along. It’s by pointing out process, and Daisy Patton shows her process well.” -Raymundo Muñoz
