Frank Bowling Interview On Abstract Critical

Robin Greenwood spoke with Frank Bowling on the occasion of an exhibition of his poured paintings at Tate Britain, which runs until March 2013. Bowling discusses his move away from figuration, his relation to American art, his adoption of abstraction, and his attitude to symbol, amongst other things. Perhaps of particular interest are Bowling’s comments on his ‘interest in architecture and sculpture’, and insistence that painting by ‘specific’ and exist as an ‘object’.
