Ray’s quotes from art history and improvisations on them include fragments from the works of Simone Martini, Vittore Carpaccio, Guido Reni, the Flemish painter Jan Massijs and the German artist Hans Maler, Piero della Francesca, Domenico Veneziano, Correggio and others. For Ray, this is a paying of dues to the painters with whom he shares his life. Towards Infinity quotes landscapes and figures – notably, background figures – from their paintings and interlaces them in its daily views, dream visions and memories. The art of painting and the history of painting are experienced here as a deep current running through the artist's biography.
