Sam Cornish interviews painter Daniel Sturgis, curator of the exhibition The Indiscipline of Painting: International Abstraction from 1960 to Now, on view at Mead Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre through March 10 2012 (formerly at Tate St. Ives).
Sturgis comments that the show is "a personal selection – one built on my concerns – but also with generosity at its core. The illusion of things in space, as you put it – is something that I am less interested in finding in recent work. Or rather I am more interested in other work – work that confronts the legacy of minimalist and modernist painting and its fission with the contemporary world that surrounds us. For me that is a crucial issue – or it is at the moment."
