Artist, Mary Heilmann: Hello, I'm Mary Heilmann.

Curator, Ann Temkin: Artist Mary Heilmann has said that Judd is one of her artistic heroes.

Mary Heilmann: Well, I love this painting. It looks like a landscape. It is very geometrically seductive. Even though it's flat, it looks three dimensional because of the curved lines. It's the, kind of a basic, simple image that somebody could love looking at for their whole life.

Ann Temkin: The yellow painting is oil on canvas. But the blue one actually adds sand to the oil, and it's made with a very nubby surface. … The paint becomes a very textural element rather than a smooth, almost unnoticeable one.

Mary Heilmann: I really love that idea. That the paintings are physical and tending to be sculptural. And that's a big part of my work, too.
