The text makes the workss too finite for me. I could spend all day making up stories about the picture, but the text tells me directly what that story is, and I come away from the pieces without any kind of engaged feeling. Be careful when you use text in visual work, because it does narrow the mean...

I like it. The medium works well with the content. I hope that this hangs in a gallery at some point, if it hasn't already. Sorry, no fury from me. I have nothing bad to say about this one.

I would love to see the butterfly more obscure in the painting. It's a painting of a butterfly, sure, but a butterfly (even in name) suggests something that is at once softly tangible and elusive. The sharpness of the butterfly makes me regard the piece too quickly, I don't really linger on it. I se...

I used to have big problems with this digital takeover that's happening. Now, I'm not so horrified by it. To me it's just another way of working. I don't think film will ever be obsolete (or at least not for a long time) because film does things that digital just can't. Likewise, digital does things...

Have you's guys seen the film by Dali and Luis Bunel? L'Age d'Or (the golden age) circa 1920's? To me, Surrealism had much more impact on filmmaking than on painting. The surrealist film movement was one of the first experimental film practices that definately oke away from "mainstream" an...

Matthew Barney

One of my favorite artists is Matthew Barney. I saw his video art series Cremaster Cycle when it was on tour two years ago, and I highly recommend it if it ever comes anywhere near you! He does everything from sculpture to photography to video, but all of his pieces have a very scuptural feel to the...

Really nice! I enjoy the colour choices on "Ghett Altarpiece" especially. There's a certain amount of innocence in representing the holy trinity in such a light and playful way. Like reconnecting it with something accessable for everyone instead of awesome for a few. This is an energy I wo...

I sure like "independance." I sometimes feel like I'm sinking into the granite around me, too. It suggests a story, for me. Like a person, crushed by the granite slabs of doom and failure, found something in it to hang on to and is only now resurfacing like a buoy after a tsunami. Very nic...

I'm comfortable in my own skin.

<---- is my name. I guess I do art. I've been somewhat stumped for ideas and motivation recently (being unemployed does a lot to your self-worth, it turns out). Lately I've been filling most of my "free" time with patching old holey clothes, but aw man, you should see them! They are pretty...
