...Does style have anything to do with what I mean to say? Is my style-anyone's style-an integral part of the work's meaning or does it just serve to individuate me from other artists and them from me? What does this color mean? Is color a style? What does this crop or frame mean? Editing things out, putting things in. Is that style? - Hilton Als, from his essay Darkness Made Visible.
