You've worked with all types of different mediums. What's your favorite?
You were born in Kentucky, educated in Montana, and now live in Brooklyn. What is it about New York that draws artists to the city?
I think all artists have to contend with New York at some point in their career. It is one of the major international art world cities, made up of artists, galleries, critics, and art press, as well as major museums and collections.
How has the Internet changed how artists become recognized?
How has the internet helped or hurt your career?
It helps in that it is much easier to organize a show with curators.
|"Art openings are the closest thing to a mediabistro.com event."|
What would you tell up-and-coming artists hoping to break into the mainstream?
Have a lot of studio visits. Invite as many people as you can to see your work. Put up a great Web site.
A number of your solo exhibitions have been at the Sara Meltzer gallery. How did that relationship get started?
One of Sara's assistants saw my work in a show at P.S.1. and convinced her to do a studio visit.
Why has it continued?
We work well together, it's a partnership.
Do you ever wish there was mediabistro.com equivalent in the art world?
Art openings are the closest thing to a mediabistro.com event.
Do you see any similarities between the life of an artist and the life of a freelance writer?
They are both really difficult professions.
You've known Laurel for a long time. What's your favorite memory of her?
The time she was at my studio and we were trying to make a prototype award. She was gluing feathers onto a piece of wood and it wasn't easy. Feathers were everywhere.
