George Taylor at One + One Exhibition"All figurative painting, however representational or 'lifelike' it purports to be, or however skilfully or artfully it is executed becomes an illusion of reality, or indeed, by definition, a deceit, and thus is essentially 'of itself', rather than its subject. Indeed, it could be argued that the more 'lifelike' a painting becomes, the more illusionistic it becomes.

For me, what we loosely describe as abstraction is in this sense, less disingenuous and as such, is inherently more honest. Although obviously there can be and often are, degrees of figuration and abstraction and thus, of deceit and honesty.

Thus, true abstract painting tends to become more autonomous – more akin to an object, rather than a representation of something else.
