In a new video curator Asher Edelman and author Charles Riley discuss the career of New York School painter Fritz Bultman. Fritz Bultman: The Missing Irascible is on view at Edelman Arts, New York, through May 11, 2013.
The video features close-ups of Bultman's paintings as well as a video walk-through of the exhibition. Riley notes that Bultman's term for what he was trying to achieve "was 'fullness.' He felt that most of the history of painting was some kind of recession from the surface backwards. Hofmann and Bultman were trying to fill the surface so that there was no further recession."
