Valerie Brennan interviews painter Henry Samelson about his work and process.
Samelson notes: "Drawing is important to my painting. But there is reciprocity between them with ideas/influence flowing back and forth. I work on a lot of paintings at the same time with dialogue between them as well. Everything plays off of everything else… Departures happen as a result of accident, frustration, ineptitude, and the difficulty of translating the muscle movements involved in drawing into the act of painting… I always reach a point of anger and disgust in a work which I think is an essential part of my process."
