Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy talk to painter Angelina Gualdoni at her exhibition Held in Place, Light in Hand at Asya Geisberg Gallery, New York, on view through February 15, 2014.

Gualdoni, whose new work employs pouring and staining techniques honed in earlier abstract paintings to still life subjects, comments on combining a variety of technical approaches in a single work: "Part of it is the dialogue that's created between those different ways of mark-making... that context of what it means to let something happen... it's also about a more elastic formal and artistic vocabulary, one that can grow and change and adapt with you rather than being locked in... so it's flexible."
