What's in a name?

What’s in a Name

"Artists use titles to illuminate, explicate, confound, frustrate—or justify a tax deduction. Even Untitled suggests a meaning."
- Kelly Devine Thomas, ARTnews (November 2005)

Part of my search for the next art movement includes looking for the right name. What do the titles of my own paintings reflect? Land (YES), Regionalism (MAYBE), Judaism (VERY OFTEN).

How do the previous title and stylistic choices, of artists, construct the path to their next work? How do these choices define both individual and group placement in the forthcoming history of art?
