Studio Talks: Thinking Through Painting, Kristina Bength, Jonatan Habib Engqvist, Jan Rydén, Sigrid Sandström Eds., Arvinius + Orfeus Publishing, 2014

Thinking Through Painting was an investigation of contemporary painting that took place 2009-2014 involving numerous discussions and studio visits. Taking the artist’s perspective as a point of departure, the book collects over 400 pages of commissioned texts and transcribed conversations between artists, theorists, curators and critics active in Stockholm, Oslo and New York. By exploring relationships between concept-based language and an embodied form of thinking through material and perception particular to painting, this book attempts to address the discourse surrounding painting and contemporary art.
