One of my most favorite painters, Judy Glantzman, talks to Gorky’s Grandaughter.  I can’t decide which the best part, maybe where Glantzman is crawling around on the floor on top of one of her drawings, and I’m in awe of the obvious physical investment, thinking, “Yes!  This is what being a painter is all about!”…or maybe the discussion about color and “the space in between” a few minutes later where Keeting and Glantzman really address some of painting’s more elusive aspects.  Just brilliant.

I have this great memory of being at a Glantzman show in NY with my then-two-year-old son.  We were standing in front of one of Glantzman’s paintings imitating her painting it…gesturing with our wrists and arms, saying things like, “Here she went WOOOSH and here she went SHLOOOP!”  and having a great time in front of it.  I kind of feel that same way during the moments when the camera pans over some of her work in progress.  Hope you do too.
