An abstract painter that I have corresponded with once in awhile, Glenn Ossiander
, was recently interviewed by art writer Molly Barnes. Click here
to view this discussion of his art and life. Glenn's paintings have a very fresh, vibrant feeling and brilliant color, and I share his excitement with the effects of layering one color over another, allowing underlying fragments to come through.
He makes some interesting comments about painting that I wish he'd been given latitude to go into in depth...but it's only a half hour long and Molly Barnes kept firing all sorts of questions at him. There is a bit about how he began painting non-representationally that fits in well with my last post and ensuing comments/discussion.
