This week in the studio, Gwendolyn Zabicki swept in to reflect on her love of painting, as Dana and Ryan get a glimpse into her sparkling studio practice. Gwendolyn decries the onerousness of curating, sharing her prolific pursuits of wrangling some big group painting exhibitions. Dana hints at a deep dish about the upcoming Open Engagement close to the chest and Ryan keeps his definition of brachylogy brief.
This episode is one for the [art] history books. Sit back and relax as you listen to Dana and Duncan get schooled by the greatest living painter to ever grace this lowly little podcast, an artist who literally needs zero introduction, Alex Katz. We discuss the brand new paintings in his recently opened exhibition, Grass and Trees, Alex’s interest in “fancy painting,” and how one develops style and technique in their work. Our hosts even get a much-needed lesson on fashion in this episode of Bad at Sports.
Alex Katz’s Grass and Trees is on view at the Richard Gray Gallery Warehouse through June 2, 2018
