Will Corwin interviews painter Andrea Belag.
Belag comments: "I use brushes, rags, knives, and I do walk around the painting in order to have a continuous stroke… I think that gesture is somewhat misunderstood and I don't think it's what my work is about. Although it is a way of getting yourself into the painting. Is a gesture walking around, or is a gesture what my arm is doing? What meaning does that have? It's all about – you've got this paint and you've got this surface and how do you get it on there? (that's what Frank Stella said) – and keep the color fresh and doing what color wants to do, which is sit in space."
