      Tuesday, 16 August 2011 17:10

        As I’ve grown older, I’ve tended to look more than I actually see: scanning the room, sizing things up, and then making assessments. Since childhood, I’ve been trained for this kind of pattern recognition.

    • In Conversation: John F. Moore, Jr Interviews Paul Corio

      Monday, 8 August 2011 23:33

      John F. Moore, Jr: Why do you prefer abstract painting? Paul Corio: Abstract painting is specifically visual. Its main message is color and scale and size and, very specifically, contour.
