Audio interview with the artist:

Mentioned in the conversation: 

Ellsworth Kelly, Carla Accardi, Mary Heilmann, Paul Feeley, Morris Louis, Lorser Feitelson, Karl Benjamin, Leon Polk Smith, Brice Marden.

A quote shared that is supposedly from Philip Guston:
"I believe it was John Cage who once told me, ‘When you start working, everybody is in your studio—the past, your friends, enemies, the art world, and above all, your own ideas—all are there. But as you continue painting, they start leaving, one by one, and you are left completely alone. Then, if you’re lucky, even you leave.’"
