The Editor prunes away superfluous parts to leave what is essential. "Cutaway," the subtitle added to this work, shows the commonality between the work and the technique used in woodcut prints of cutting away unneeded parts from the woodblock and leaving only the essential lines.
The Editor prunes the branches emerging from the planter on her lap. The eyes at the ends of the branches are eyes that see the truth -- a reference to a painting of Saint Lucy by Francesco Del Cossa. Within the planter are touchstones that can be used to test for gold. This is a portrait of the Editor who distinguishes what is absolutely essential in order to move closer to the truth.
