Video interview with painter Josephine Halvorson.
Halvorson discusses her process of working on location in a single session. She notes: "I can feel with my brushstrokes what it's like to be that surface or that object. So say it's steel, when I make that color and I paint it down, it feels like steel when it is becoming the thing, when there's a sythesis between my painting and the object and myself. When we're all the same thing at the same moment. That is the closest I can get to that object."
Halvorson's paintings were recently on view in the exhibition What Looks Back at Sikkema Jenkins & Co., New York.
