I haven't done a studio update in a while, so here's an excerpt from a recent interview at Studio Critical, a new painting blog based in Madrid, in which I tried to articulate some of my thoughts about painting, irresoluteness and impersonating a modernist.
SC: Tell me about your process, where things begin, how they evolve etc.
SB: These new paintings have been hovering in an unfinished state for a couple months. I like drawing out the process, so I’m using pencil and acrylic on small wood panels to make interim studies of details in the paintings. I used to do this on the computer, but now I do it by hand. I’ve enjoyed working on the studies so much that I’m reluctant to finish the paintings, the very incompleteness of which has provided a good subject for new work.
SC: What are you having the most trouble resolving?
