Arthur Peña interviews painter Joyce Pensato on the occasion of the exhibition FOCUS: Joyce Pensato at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, on view through January 31, 2016.

Pensato comments: "I’m taking the ways of Abstract Expressionism in the way I apply paint but I don’t censor pop culture from my work. I’m combining both." She adds: "[Painting] happens when you’re one with your body and lose yourself in what you do."
