THIEBAUD VIA MORANDI
The Morandi Museum in Bologna is continuing its program of exhibitions that show affinities between Morandi’s painting and the work of leading contemporary artists. In 2005 they had a homage to Josef Albers and in 2009 exhibited the work of photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher. Their current exhibition shows the work of Wayne Thiebaud alongside Morandi’s. This exhibition will be up until October 2, 2011.
Wayne Thiebaud speaks here in a video interview made by Victor Loh and Germano Maccioni. In this interview Mr. Thiebaud has many thoughtful and powerful things to say about such things as form and caricatures, tensions and pressures in still-life and making your painting in an open “organic” manner. He also discusses Morandi’s still life in depth. A great video that has much to offer with repeated viewing.
