Interview with painter Julia Schwartz about her work and studio practice. Schwartz notes: "It is very rare for me to start with a conscious idea or concept. That said, I have the feeling that much of the time that I'm out in the world, I'm taking things in that are then going to go into the artwork... When I come into the studio, that is the time for not thinking but for being present with the materials and just painting."
Julia Schwartz: The Hollow Sea is on view at Bleicher Gallery La Brea, CA through September 5, 2011.
