Wolf Kahn - on painting and being a landscape painter

"A painting with content" (Video 2)
"I was trying even then to do something I'm still trying to do - to get away from description and at the same time still be a landscape painter"
Wolf Kahn

This a two part interview with Wolf Kahn - the renowned landscape painter who works in both oil and pastels.

The two videos from 2008 are from New Art TV

In the first he talks about the earlier part of his life and how his artwork developed and was influenced by the philosophies and contemporary art movements of the fifties.

This is the second part of the interview with Wolf Kahn in which he describes how he got launched and started to sell seriously

"I'm constantly trying to get away from the deliberate...and intentionality"
Wolf Kahn

Thanks to Debora L. Stewart (Contemporary Asbtract Pastels) for alerting me to the videos

Thanks Katherine!

I really enjoyed these videos. Love some of Wolf Kahn's softer colors and the rhythm in his work.
