Joseph Marioni: Thoughts on Painting

Image coming soon.

Jeffrey Collins posts a collection of writings on painting by Joseph Marioni including the essays The Radical Place of Painting, Socrates and the Alligator, and Noting Color.

In Socrates and the Alligator Marioni writes: "What I propose, to this gathering of painters, is that we seriously consider a radical break with the problems of the art world establishment. By this I do not mean that we should establish a new formal academy or that we should posture ourselves in an ant-theoretical stance against the art world.  I am proposing that we rethink the history of painting from the point of view of a painter… that we disengage the profession of painting from the problems of the art world and then let us see how painting will appear independent of the needs of the art world to use painting as a vehicle to transport cultural ideas."
