Two large group shows of abstract paintings are showing in Philadelphia this month. One is at the Crane but the other, opening Nov. 15 at Bridgette Mayer Gallery, marks the inauguration of the gallery’s newly redesigned space. Included in that show is painter Tim McFarlane, who has been with her gallery since 2001. Among the things we wanted to know–whether the imagery in his painting represents anything in particular, and how he uses the internet; we met McFarlane online when we started artblog in 2003.
Here’s a brief sample of our conversation. Listen to the full episode next Monday.
