1. How I think with paint in 2010. Sitting down for another round of Leucovorin Calcium and Fluorouracil I decided to think about painting. Or rather, try to think about thinking with paint. I believe I copped that term from the James Elkins book, "What Painting Is". It makes sense to me. We move the pigment and binder around in a pre-linguistic rush. Forming the world with haptic glee. Feeling into the plane with our eyes. However, the meaning of the work DOES NOT come first and then the work is created to represent that meaning. Like Miles Davis said, "I'll play it first and tell you what it is later." The meaning percolates up from the ground. The ground is the surface where the painter freely roams in an open world boundless of artificial constraints, and with there being no right way of pushing the paint. Painting is like divination but without asking a question first. The paint becomes symbolic of things in the world that we name. Paint takes on anthropic principles in which values are consistent with conditions for life as we know it. We don't create something new but discover with paint relationships that we appreciate from experiencing Reality. We don't see something and then reproduce it with the filter of our ego. We don't give a soulful take on Nature. Why water Nature down with our ego? We create natural relationships or like true mathematicians, painters are discoverers of naturally occurring objects. The painting emerges during the process of self-organization.

  4. This was a tongue-in-cheek response to an interview I felt I rambled my loopy way through. Heck, I don't even paint like this anymore. The process of layers informed the Macro-micro duality I was thinking about, but today I desperately avoid such a systematic if-this-then-that way of painting.

  5. James Kalm slips into Chelsea to capture a brief glimpse of “Missing Pictures”, the latest series of paintings by Dana Schutz. Since her emergence, Schutz has attracted the attention of critics, curators and collectors with her endearingly quirky expressionistic views of daily life and takeoffs on classic Americana. The new work features the inclusion of acrylic staining accentuated with oil paint, creating a fluid membrane reminiscent of watercolor. Featuring an interview with Brett de Palma.

    I appreciate the attempt. At the same time, this video needs editing badly. I would have liked to actually SEE the pieces, rather than zooming in and out with a shaky camera.

    Good try, though.
