I spoke to five artists...' so starts an interesting article and interview by the American Curator Christopher Bedford, on the issues in abstract painting explored by Charline Von Heyl, Tomma Abts, Matt Connors, Tauba Auerbach, Bernd Ribbeck. (See our posts on Charlene Von Heyl, Tomma Abbts and Matt Connors last year.)
