Interviews

Was spending some time today reading some interviews from the Brooklyn Rail magazine, and thought i'd share a few of my favorites here. Always better to get your history right from the artists or writers mouth than from a third or fourth party.

Here's an awesome interview of David Anfam (who has written books on Rothko, Still, Kline, Pollock, Kapoor) with John Yau. You really get a sense of how David set about learning about his favorite painters. And how that love helped him get to where he is today.

Here's another great one by Phong Bui with Painter David Reed. I always love these interviews with David as he's a stickler for history and you always learn something new about him or his work with each interview.

And if you want the audio version of this, you can find it here.

Enjoy.
