Michael Rutherford interviews painter Osamu Kobayashi.
Kobayashi notes that "Paint became my medium of choice for a couple of reasons... It never seemed 'dead' to me. I also liked paint's unpredictability. When approaching my work, I usually have an intention in mind, but often, what I have in mind is different than what actually happens on canvas. A push and pull ensues between what I want and what the paint wants to do. When it works out, instead of a compromise, the result is better than what I could have anticipated."
