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'.

Down the street at Thomas Dane's second gallery, Sillman shows 288 stills from her recent iPad animation 13 Possible Futures: Cartoon for a Painting. The animation takes up where the painting leaves off, the layer of the painting that you see is thebeginningof the animation and therefore the animation is a new future. It is of importance to me that people understand the animation as a set of proposals for the future of the painting, as well as a way to reveal its past. Amy Sillman
