ART:21 – Memory

by: Alexis Granwell

Art:21 is an excellent educational video series that first aired on PBS. Art:21 interviews established artists about their work and shows footage of these artists working in their studios. Each season has a different theme.

I wanted to post this link about Susan Rothenberg. Her paintings are associated with Abstract Expressionism. They are incredibly physical and tactile. I love the footage of Rothenberg in her studio. Apparently she rarely cleans her brushes and her palette is so built up with paint that it begins to look like a relief sculpture. Out of all the muck, she creates these beautiful pieces.
