Alchemy of Paint: A Studio Visit with Margie Livingston and Isaac Quigley

Margie Livingston (NAP #61) has spent the last couple of years pouring, compacting and carving paint. Her experimentation with the limit of paint’s sculptural malleability has culminated in a (still-evolving) process by which she manufactures sheets of marbled, plastic acrylic that are later rolled, folded and cut into a number of forms, often posts or logs. Isaac Quigley indulges the materiality of paint in a different way, often pushing his canvases toward the brink of assemblage or bricolage. His paintings, which take up to a year to complete, are splashed with landslides of color, overlaid with delicate drawing, and embedded with paper, plastic and textiles.

Where to draw the line: A Conversation with Bette Burgoyne and Jed Dunkerley

I sit down at a bar at the north end of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood with two artists whose work is the definition of obsessive, both in technique and content. Neither of them identify as OCD or autistic.

Busted Open Abstraction: Fritz Chesnut on Richard Prince

Painter Fritz Chesnut first stumbled across Richard Prince, the artist whose repurposed photographs of cowboys, bikers and open roads made Americana sexier and more sinister, when still an undergraduate in Santa Cruz. “I think I was in the library just combing through books,” he says. “I remember discovering Rauschenberg the same way. Just grabbing this big glossy book and thumbing through it and being completely fascinated.” - Catherine Wagley, LA Contributor
