Two part video interview with London-based painter Alice Browne in her studio. Browne discusses her studio practice and a range of topics related to her work including color and working in "the gap between somebody looking at something directly and... looking at a photograph of the thing... I'm... interested in trying to pick up a little bit of that sensation... that... being there feeling, but also the shift between the two."
Interview with painter Inga Dalrymple. Dalrymple discusses her studio practice and influences: "I don’t set out to paint something with an end game in mind. I regularly destroy paintings (by which I mean either scraping back, if I'm using oils, or repainting if I’m using acrylic) not because I don’t always like the results, but because I like how this services the painting. It's also a liberating way to work because then I don’t feel beholden to the original intention."
"I think a lot about graffiti and the way that the layering of spray paint over markers or posters or whatever creates a riot of mess but somehow, if you look closely, there can be a dazzling little discord going on..."
Erin Langner visits the studio of Seattle-based painter Kimberly Trowbridge. Langner writes: "While the artist's tangible surroundings subtly factor into the work through color and form, real time, places and people are absent; instead both her paintings and studio construct unconventional utopias that only hint at ordinary existence."
Interview with painter Peter Blundell. Of his process Blundell notes: "The intention is to resolve the painting into a concrete pictorial form. It is very open to begin with and goes through many changes but after a time the painting determines itself."
