Cecily Brown and Amy Sillman talk with painter Robert Bordo. Works by Bordo and Sam Anderson with Michel Auder are on view at Bortolami, New York through June 18, 2016.
Bordo comments: "When an image pops, it's a fantastic physical and emotional feeling, and I get so excited by the possibilities of this new idea that sometimes I can't handle it in the painting. I’m rushing to capture it, often losing the painting entirely; that's when I push to win it back. Reworking turns it into a painting more than merely image or idea."
