”A painting must always move beyond its subject,” says British painter Michael Simpson, who sees the practice of painting as ”giving form to an idea.” Hear how he, David Hockney and 6 other painters work with the classical art form.
“The painting moves me forward – and I follow.” Meet Swedish Anna Bjerger, who wants to preserve the excitement of painting, and who paints from photographs, feeling that she can somehow rescue images “that would otherwise disappear.”
Join us as we visit painter Anna Bjerger at her home in Sweden, where she talks about how she paints from old, anonymous photographs, and what that means for her as an artist: “You can’t fake it. You’ve got to have genuine feeling for this image.”
