I’ve got to admit that of late I’ve been disinterested in provisionality (and it’s faux-naive cousins), finding its opposite to actually feel a little more daring. But the Rubinstein article manages to zoom in on what’s still kind of exciting in provisional painting, especially the 8th section, where he essentially lays it on the line: maybe provisional painting is making an important statement, maybe it’s just a crappy mannerism for lazy painters in an easy market, and the implication being, maybe it’s still exciting because we just don’t know–artistic practice as Russian roulette, maybe?
