Julian Schnabel - Untitled Chinese Painting

Schnabel spent this past summer alfresco on Montauk, Long Island creating these pieces that took the form of a mark making diary. Seven of the ten finished paintings are currently on display.

The inspiration for the ground of this work originated with a Chinese mirror the artist found more than two decades ago. Schnabel describes the coupling of the background with the calligraphic action of these paintings as “a serendipitous coincidence.”

    Always good to see what Schnabel is putting on the canvas.
    Seems he is more known as a director these days, which is fine, but it is good to see he still likes to get his hands dirty with a brush.
