This week I welcomed back Jennifer Coates and Elisabeth Condon to the podcast to discuss the recent exhibition "Bonnard: The Experience of Seeing" at Acquavella Gallery, NYC April 12 - May 26, 2023. We each chose a single painting from the show to discuss and so I'm calling us The Bonnardians. It's a Bonnard-a-trois! Come along for a hilarious, smart and nerdy look at this fascinating post-impressionist artist.

Elisabeth is back on the pod to describe a painting, and it's a fascinating one: "Untitled" 1968-69 from the Edge Painting series by Sam Francis. Come along as Elisabeth takes us not only through the painting itself, but also through Sam Francis' life and influences: namely that of his beloved Japan. The concept of "ma" or the potential of emptiness, Asian ink painting, and Francis' unique anti-New York gentle lyricism all factor in to make this talk a riveting deep dive into this Californian-born, second-generation Abstract Expressionist artist.

Our beloved guest host and artist, Elisabeth Condon, and her series "Elisabeth Condon Describes a Painting" are back for a new installment! This time Elisabeth chose to describe Joseph Stella's oil on canvas painting "Tree of My Life" from 1919 that she saw at The Norton Museum in "Joseph Stella: Visionary Nature."


Break a bottle of bubbly beverage over the hull, because today, Pep Talks is launching the very first installment of..."Elisabeth Condon Describes a Painting!" In this episode, Elisabeth chose to describe Jules Olitski's "Wanderings, Bilbao: Orange Yellow and Blue" acrylic on canvas painting from 2004. She recently saw the painting at The Sam and Adele Golden Gallery in New Berlin, NY, in "Jules Olitski: Late Works." October 30, 2022
