finding what's enough, John Zurier, artist interview

Each painting has to be very, very natural and have its own plane and light to it, and its own composition. The brush stroke is about finding what's enough, and what's exactly right. Like in Japanese gardening, you want to allow some leaves to remain when you're sweeping a path so it will feel natural.

Here are a couple images from his new show A Spring a Thousand Years Ago at Peter Blum.
