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'.

RUDOLF STINGEL Untitled, 2010, Oil on canvas, 132 x 180 3/4 inches
After the stunning exhibition at the Palazzo Grassi for the Venice Biennale Rudolf Stingel's new show shifts focus from architecture to image. Based on vintage black and white photographs of his birthplace in the Tyrolean Alps Stingel reproduces every scratch, fold and aberration of the photograph focusing on memory an its decline.
