Peter Van Dyck

Larry Groff interviews contemporary realist painter Peter Van Dyck. Van Dyck comments on the "modernist" influence on his new work: "...I did see people in school whose work had an assertive shape life and I guess I was attracted to that. So, gradually, shape design became (I think) the dominant organizational and expressive force in my paintings..." Groff and Van Dyck also discuss combining direct observation and memory in a picture. The interview is accompanied by a large selection of Van Dyck's paintings.
