Bound by a use-by date, the painting is only one element of a repertoire of available forms that the artist has at her disposal to suggest appearances and engineer images. Unless spared by acquisition, at the end of five years of inactivity, the painting is destroyed. The painting's physical existence is only ever a simulation.
