Geoff Tuck posts installation views of Margie Livingston's installation Twenty Gallons at LACE - Los Angeles Contemporary Art Exhibitions, on view through March 25, 2012. Of Livingston's brushstrokes, Tuck writes, "they are objects unto themselves. They are several removes away from the act of painting, and flirt with sculpture but then veer off in a different direction. Here her objects play with the architecture in a nice way. They lay upon the surfaces... It’s a bit like walking through a halo."
As part of a series Artist vs. Studio, Erin Langner looks at the work of Seattle-based painter Margie Livingston. Livingston's current works, Paint Objects, are simultaneously painting and sculpture. Langer writes: "Livingston’s studio mirrors the direction of her practice through the presence of drills, saws and other power tools throughout the otherwise traditional painter’s studio."
Edited by artist Brett Baker, Painters' Table highlights writing from the painting blogosphere as it is published and serves as a platform for exploring blogs that focus primarily on the subject of painting.
