See more of Maxson's videos here.

"[Maxson's] videos are tone poems of awkward, gushing and sometimes embarrassing love for television. They straddle a line between a deep fascination with the transformative, almost mystical powers of “being on TV” and the complete panic and anxiety that comes when the camera is on."

'Speaking thicke (which Nature made his blemish).

'This greene plot shall be our stage

'Hee strokes up his mustachoes three times, and makes six plots of set faces, before he speakes one wise word.'

"I think once I stopped caring quite so much about where I fitted in, and whether it made any sense to be painting, I started getting more and more absorbed in it. I've discovered that the more I paint, the more I want to paint. The longer I go on doing it, the more I have to say and do. You pose a certain set of questions in one group of paintings and you want to answer them in the next. One body of work leads naturally to the next - you sort of feed off yourself. It's a question of accepting the limits of painting and trying to be as imaginative and expansive as possible within those boundaries." (Cecily Brown at the Guardian)

Back in the studio and using oil paint again, and on this first wobbly night of re-learning how to paint, I'm encouraged by Allison Schulnik and Nathalie Djurberg. Here is a video of Schulnik's 'Hobo Clown' animation, and here is a peek at Djurberg's installation at the 2009 Biennale di Venezia.

Vincent and I give solemnly, thoroughly impressed mention to the following two links:

'Arresting the uncanny: Amy Lockhart mines the subconscious', an essay by Gabrielle Moser

A 2008 lecture by painter Dana Schutz (who also takes the audience through her earliest paintings!)
