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'.

David Thorpe's exhibition this summer LOVED UNDERGROUND at Meyer Riegger, Berlin consisted of a series of pipeline's and fresco paintings. Thorpe's work is entirely hand made using non-synthetic materials (mud, natural dyes, bone glue, slack lime, hazel branches, casein). The artists labor, nature and an overwhelming enthusiasm for the decorative runs through all of Thorpe's work.
