Hrag Vartanian interviews Jason Andrew, curator of Jack Tworkov: The Accident of Choice on view June 17 – September 17, 2011 at Black Mountain College Museum and Art Center, Asheville, NC.
The exhibition investigates Tworkov's involvement with Black Mountain College. Describing the derivation of the show title, Andrew quotes Tworkov "For a long time I felt that painting from nature was the freest approach to painting because you didn't have to invent or compose. You could paint freely. I wanted to avoid the Bauhaus method of designing a surface. Painting from nature gave me the freedom in theme, the accident of choice."
