Interview with artist, painter Tamar Zinn whose exhibition At the Still Point is on view at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, New York, through May 7, 2016.

Zinn comments: "I keep going as long as the painting continues to irritate me; I often don’t know what is off about it, only that it hasn’t yet arrived. Both the geometry and field are modified repeatedly over many painting sessions, until the moment when, as if by magic, everything seems to have found its place. That magic is the moment of the ‘still point’—for me, it embodies tension and complexity along with quiet, clarity along with uncertainty."
