THE FOLD IN CONTEMPORARY ABSTRACT PAINTING: AN OPPORTUNITY TO RECONSIDER HOW WE TALK ABOUT PAINTING  While reading Deleuze's "The Fold," an essay which uses vivid metaphorical language to describe a new take on a Baroque philosophical concept, during research on Roland Flexner, Tyler Emerson-Dorsch experienced a euphoric period of inspiration.
