White Flag Panel: On the New Abstract

December 8th, 2006 · No Comments · 2004 - 2012 Sketchbook, St Louis, Writing


Brandon Anschultz, Jerald Ieans, Eva Lundsager and Daniel Raedeke spoke with moderator Jim Schmidt last night at White Flag Projects about their exhibition (quite good and closing Dec 16), working strategies and the current abstract painting sensibility. Anschultz and Lundsager stole the show with thoughtful and sincere responses. Among them: opposing strategies of keeping a studio stocked with inspirations or free from distractions, wondering when neon orange will loose its charm and Battlestar Galactica as inspiration.

One of the best questions asked all evening — “Which bodies of knowledge do you collect to inform your work?” — seemed to make the panelists nervous. Apparently this is either a trade secret or the artists are not considering non-painting issues. With abstract painting’s history and conceptual restraints considered, the future of abstract painting will necessitate careful strategy.

We spent the day reworking our choreography for the shoot on Saturday. It’s risky to do this so soon before the shoot, but worth it if we can pull it off in time.

We bought an old electric organ at a thriftstore for $6 and an old TV listed on Craig’s List for $10 and hit the road. This video was shot on the bank of the Mississippi river in Illinois. The final video will be presented solely on the black and white TV in the video.

Can you make a finished artwork in one day? We’re gonna try to make a finished video–complete with presentation today. We’ll post our progress tomorrow.
