How could you do that with paint? Linda Francis Interview

Ben La Rocco interviews Linda Francis for the Brooklyn Rail.
I really see my painting as conjecture. I ask myself a question. So the question is: “How come something changes in every state that it’s in; and how does it look when it changes?” If it goes from a gas to a solid, to a block, to this, to that, if it goes faster or slower, if it could be one thing that looks like something in one stage and completely different in another, how could you do that with paint?

The work below is from her show Interference at Minus Space.
