“What Should a Painter Do?” references the series of paintings “Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue” from Barnett Newman in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Barnett’s comments from the movie “Painters Painting” have been excerpted and modified for one channel of the sound, while the other 2 channels are processed versions of the same voice channel.
