    1. Then, scale. Pollock's choice of enormous canvases served many purposes, chief of which for our discussion is that his mural-scale paintings ceased to become paintings and became environments.

      Pollock wanted to create a world for his audience within an artwork and merge his paintings and audiences, which also makes a kind of separateness when people look at his works, reminding me of Barnett Newman. It is very interesting to learn more about some artists’ concepts, and I also noticed that his unique creation method of "drip painting" is very free and unfettered, which represents his unique artistic style.

    1. There was a culture then, almost a requirement, that one needed to build platforms and contexts (social or political) to support one’s thesis, and then material practice would follow. These issues were pressing, because by this time I had begun to teach at Cooper Union. I was negotiating between promoting a rigorous painting model and a new context—conversations with students and colleagues about contemporary art issues and institutional critique. So it was a very complicated time for me as an educator, to figure out how to insist on a conversation about painting rigor in relation to contemporary art. I continued to go the way that I needed to with my own work, both protecting it from the institutional framework and furthering my ideas about painting in school and in the studio—it was a tough, amazing time.
