There's an interesting interview of American Figure Painter, Philip Pearlstein by Phong Bui, artist, curator, editor and publisher of The Brooklyn Rail. Read the interview here. Pearlstein exhibited in September 2005 at the Betty Cunningham Galley in Chelsea. "Pearlstein has been exhibiting in New York since his first one-man show in 1955 at Tanager Gallery on East 10th Street. He is the artist of his generation who understood, and briefly explored, the tenets of the Abstract Expressionists, but whose style and methods of expression led away from the abstract to a more concrete, initialized view of the world and the human body."
