Julia Morrisroe is a painter and associate professor at University of Florida. Looking at Painting began as a way to share my commitment to look and occasionally write about a wide variety of painting, contemporary and historical. In particular I'm looking at this as public commonplace book, a long term project to explore what I mean when I say 'thats a painting'.

I love these castings of paint as paintings found in Loops, Jack Whitten's new show Zeno X in Antwerp. Robert Storr interviewed Whitten for the Brooklyn Rail in 2007, its a wide ranging conversation covering Whitten meeting Dr. King, Jazz, 911 and memorial paintings.
