INTERVIEW – I PAINT MY MIND

Here is an interview that I did with I Paint My Mind. I am very proud of the piece and that is due in no small part to the quality of questions from interviewers Evan La Ruffa and Sonny Kay. Below is an excerpt.

“When I started working conceptually as an artist, I felt like a rough fish swimming through seemingly empty waters. Over time, bits of debris began to stick to my surface. My heart stayed the same but my shape began changing and I started to grow and the larger I got, the faster I grew. My course changed as I caught light in different directions and masses that accumulated on my surface either held tight or snapped off and became food for scavengers. Of course, I am responding metaphorically, but for me, this allegory has cracked the egg and chased off the chicken.”

WIKILEAKS AND SOME FINAL PROOF

My now infamous print of the “virtual turnout” for #occupywallstreet was rehashed and posted on the wikileaks facebook page as real evidence this week. It got a staggering amount of attention there. Some people understood the image, some people were motivated by it and some were further enraged. That’s just how it has been.

Since there is still confusion and the origin of the image is still inexplicably in question for some, I thought it might be a good idea to offer concrete evidence. If you look closely at the roof of city hall in the #occupywallstreet image, you will note my logo is clearly visible. I hope that this ends any doubt.

HAPPY FAMOUS ARTISTS

I got swept up in an avalanche of confusion fueled by several thousand misconceptions surrounding a head scratching image that I made of the “virtual” turnout for #occupywallstreet. Some folks got it, though. Thanks to Happy Famous Artists for passing on some truth.

WHEREFORE ART THOU?

A wink and a nod to Wherefore Art Thou? for finding my work. The blog claims to be “a critique of the inane and inconsequential.” This gargoyle has been perched in that niche for more than a decade.

DREAM TEAM

THIS ISN’T HAPPINESS

Thanks to This Isn’t Happiness for sharing the recent print “Spectrum Sipper.” One of the ‘Top 100 Overall’ ranked blogs on the internet according to Technorati. They have a very strong sense of sight according to me. I just followed them and you should consider taking similar action.
