In January the 2017 paintings will be replaced by ones from 2008 as a marker and celebration of Arcade’s tenth anniversary. We will step across that arbitrary line when one year changes to another, fall back ten years, and yet still be in the present. The system of numbering years homogenises and cuts time, and although date-as-number is emphatically present on every painting, that function doesn’t seem to truly fit. The equivocality of the numbers as shapes as well as symbols makes them just one of many things-from-the-world that are mediated and put into play on the surface of the canvas, pointing not to a system of possible meanings but presenting a lived movement in time.
