Paint as Experience

Norman Carton: from Ukraine to Philadelphia to New York, bridging Impressionism and Abstract Expressionism
At age 10, in 1918, Norman Carton and his mother were in hiding during pogroms unleashed by the Russian revolution; six years later the same boy found himself safe and sound in Philadelphia, rescued from Eastern Europe by the intervention of his older brother, who had already relocated to the States.  The pogroms in Ukraine during the Russian civil war resulted in the murder of up to 250,000 Jews.  Carton had escaped with his family through Romania and immigrated to the U.S. in 1922.

Nonagenarian Artist Audrey Flack Is Still Booked and Busy With a Tell-All Memoir

“Since it was 41 years of notes, it would have been an 1,800-page book if everything had gone in,” said 92-year-old artist Audrey Flack on writing her  memoir from her home studio on the Upper West Side earlier this year. “The book doesn’t have everything that I’ve experienced, but it has a lot.” Published by Penn State University Press, With Darkness Came Stars begins with a moment of crisis for the artist, wherein in her early 50s she faced a “painting block” prohibiting her from finishing the work for a forthcoming show.

At 92, Audrey Flack Has a Juicy Memoir, a New Art Show, and a Lot to Say

In the early 1970s, the artist Audrey Flack traveled to the Basílica de la Macarena in Seville, Spain, to see a carved-wood statue called Macarena Esperanza, a polychrome depiction of a weeping Virgin Mary adorned with jewels, crystal tears, and false eyelashes. Flack is Jewish, but she was no less overcome by the Macarena’s sorrowful splendor: Here was a mother shedding tears for her child—Flack could relate—but she was also regal, grand, beautiful. Flack photographed the statue and, once back home in New York, made several paintings based on her pictures, capturing each resplendent detail in high definition.

Rising Painter Osamu Kobayashi’s Ethereal Abstractions Evoke Spectral Visions

In his Brooklyn studio under the Gowanus Expressway, painter Osamu Kobayashi fills notebooks with approximately two-square-inch sketches of abstract shapes. These small graphite doodles, lined up in grids in his sketchbook, are the blueprints for the color-drenched canvases that fill his studio, including Inner, Outer (2023), an expansive abstract painting resembling a figure eight. He closely references these drawings, placing checkmarks next to those he wants to paint. Then, Kobayashi uses huge brushes—some created by affixing almost 30 utility brushes to a single piece of molding—to translate these forms onto the canvas.
