A study he posted 16 January 2010 (note: I jacked up brightness in the blog pic a little so the image can be seen more clearly):
Another, more substantive interview.
"It's been my experience that viewers will see the broad outlines of a painting at first, begin to construct a narrative that fits their world view, and then selectively ignore details of the painting that conflict with this constructed narrative. So if you construct an image with a narrative, or message that conforms to standard belief, say a moral lesson, the chances that your painting will be correctly interpreted are high, but if you're attempting a dissident narrative you're going to struggle to convey that explicitly." -JG
