"It cannot be too clearly understood that some chief notions of European thought were framed under the influence of a misapprehension, only partially corrected by the scientific progress of the last century. This mistake consists in the confusion of mere potentiality with actuality. Continuity concerns what is potential; whereas actuality is incurably atomic." (Alfred North Whitehead, Process and Reality, p. 61)
As a contemporary realist artist I am concerned with the actual. The parameters and implications of this are for the history of art to define as those making up that history define it through their actuality.
