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'.

The last gallery was the most traditional space with large white walls. This gallery had a group of jacquard tapestries, similar to the NYC show and some bronze wall works. After the intimacy and integration of the work in the previous space this gallery felt a little too crisp and clean. Nevertheless, maybe it was the wine at lunch or the surprise of finding this show but Path came through with greater clarity and Smith's use of materials, the constant presence of her touch, was powerful.
