Considering Art Podcast – Maro Gorky, landscape painter

Maro Gorky, daughter of Abstract Expressionist Ashile Gorky, talks about how she was taught to paint as a child, the anger and guilt she felt over her father’s death, the influence of her tutors Jeffrey Camp and Frank Auerbach at the Slade, her move to Tuscany where she has lived a simple life for more than half a century and the way she interprets landscape with colours, shapes and symbols.
