Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy visit the studio of painter Michael Berryhill.

Asked about his paintings, in which gestural abstraction and imagery blend together, Berryhill remarks "There's something about the searching for the thing you don't know what it is, the invention part I like, so when I get something in a drawing, I like, to work on it until it feels like a thing."
