Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy visit the studio of painter Megan Craig.

Craig comments: "I think of my paintings as records of energy... I think of my own work in terms of its verbalness more than its nominal quality... when something feels closed to me it feels overly nominal like there's a noun at the front of the painting and I think I'm always aiming for the verb." She continues: "it's not about that moment of 'Oh, I see the thing I'm supposed to see'... it's not legible in that way. It's more about having this sense of either mood or life or some resonance that makes you feel."
