Jennifer Samet talks with painter Sharon Horvath about her new paintings and her process.
Horvath, referring to a recently completed painting, remarks: "It is made of all this cross-hatching and weaving of lines. It is a specific energy. The question is, what energy are you really working with? When you compare painters, there can be superficial likenesses, but the spirit may be really different -- what they are made of. Sometimes you step back from your work, and you think, 'What am I really working with here?' Not 'What am I doing?' but 'What am I working with?' When I knit all these lines, it is like I'm mending something. Trying to build something, but also keep it together."
