    Art in America Interviews Adam Pendleton

    Ultimately, what a successful portrait does is that it presents the impossibility of summarizing who someone is—how any kind of representation is ultimately a conversation with some form of abstraction. Having spent several hours with David and three years working on this piece, I don't have a view of who he is per se. The piece is about listening, and language and image, so hopefully it moves in many directions at once, and doesn't present a simplistic view of who David Hilliard is.
