“It’s often a distraction.”
I want to point out that responding to depiction and illustration often involves something apart from the formal characteristics of painting. It’s often a distraction. On the other hand, purely formal characteristics exercise the senses as do string quartets, piano concertos, Dixieland. Because of this the representation I’m interested in is of those things only the eye can touch.
