41:47 - Finish

This week on the show my guest is artist Doug Young. Doug has just begun a new body of work of paintings on glass,  using a technique called reverse painting.  The images in Doug’s paintings depict strange and fantastical places including a vintage Disneyland Attraction, a lethal injection room and a view of the Death Star’s equatorial trench which Luke Skywalker famously navigates at the end of the film Star Wars.

I sat down with Doug in his studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn to talk about his painting technique, the way that music informs his painting, and how setting the Guinness World Record for longest continuous banjo performance in 2001 transformed the way he makes art.
