Sarah Goffstein interviews painter Dannielle Tegeder whose installation, Infrastructure, is on view at the Montclair Art Museum through June 30, 2017.
Tegeder remarks: “It’s a really interesting question as to whether abstract painting can still have that political impulse and impact. Even though my work embodies ephemeral spaces, I think it also talks about borders and countries that are dissolving… I think that painting is about failure. You continue making paintings, because you are failing, or at least I do. You’re constantly reaching for something more. I think that’s a similar evolution that you see in cities.”
