Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy visit the studio of painter Glenn Goldberg whose exhibition Other Places is on view at Jason McCoy Gallery, New York through August 16, 2013.

Discussing his work Goldberg notes: "I'm looking for a quiet, somewhat mysterious action in my work... philosophically I'm interested in the union of clarity and imprecision... things have to be correct in a very strange and particular way." Addressing art more broadly, he comments: "I like that important conversations can happen around works of art or actions... hopefully that's what we're most interested in, not... 'you're an amazing painter.'  What does it mean to be a good painter or a good artist? I think we artists have to look at that and be open to redefining that whether it's subtly or at the core."
