preparing for this upcoming show, couldn't have been easier. I basically made a list of things I like. Words, objects, events, dreams Ive had, music etc. then sketched things that came to mind when thinking about them. I wanted to take a break from all seriousness, and just have fun. I found working on these pieces to be the most therapeutic work Ive ever done. It actually felt like a subconscious purging. Working so closely with April on the show has added to the pleasantness. Her approach to her work and the overall innocence to it, helped me remember to not get too controlling.
The theme grew on its own. We both like the same things, and conversing about our obsessions it all came out in the work.
