Sharon Butler posts a conversation between Mira Schor and Stuart Horodner from the 2013 College Art Association Conference. Schor's solo exhibition Chthonic Garden will be on view at CB1 Gallery, Los Angeles, from October 19 - December 8, 2013.
In the CAA interview, Schor discusses her development as a artist and speaks about choosing to paint: "I tried to bring the essence of painting, which was under attack, to feminism and to feminist theory." She also comments on her interest in language as image, noting that she turned to "handwriting as a trace of self and a form of address... whether or not you can read the text, you got the impression of language... I paint in English, that means that it might not be understandable, but I would hope that somebody looking at the work would say: 'This is language, I know language.' "
