Quote for the day, from Ed Ruscha, “Whatever I do, I’m having a dialogue with myself. That’s the impetus for it all… Two types of work might be different in some ways, but they have a little silver thread between them.”
And on that note, I’ll leave you with two types of my own work, side by side. That silver thread is there, whether or not it’s immediately apparent. It makes no difference at all to me whether I’m working with birds or people or chairs or steel, I am still working with the same broad set of concerns. The sculptures obviously look different than the paintings, especially since I’m not doing figurative sculptures, but in my mind they are not so very different. (These two, for instance, each have arms and legs!).
