“We are all somnambulists to a greater or less degree, but few are such contented ones that they have never craved for clarification of the déjà vus, a light trained on the movement behind the thick scrim of the familiar, an awakened sense of the significance of a larger whole that occasionally sweeps over them. I find there are secrets, certain numinous things, that seem to speak to me in a special sense, signaling in a language that compels decoding. To be faithful to this task demands absolute attention.”
- Polly Thayer (Starr), “Why I paint” (undated manuscript)
