The invitation extended by a piece of artwork usually begins with appeal created by its surface. Surface, however, is only the skin on the piece. It stands on the shoulders of a history whose origins, unless borrowed, probably began with a single mark.
The subsurface is a series of actions and reactions that connect to the surface. This connection holds a balance and tension that, like a string to a kite, takes the surface to lofty heights. Therefore, scratching the surface in an artwork is a contextual revelation.
