John F. Moore interviews painter Paul Corio about color and abstract painting. Corio notes: "Color is really sort of bashful. If you use really active figures, particularly if you use faces, or anything recognizable, the color wants to jump into the back seat. Red would much rather be the property of a fire engine or an apple than an entity unto itself. So, if you use bland enough figuration, color becomes the star of the show."
