Well, I never really intended to make a career out of it – I’ve had a bit of a difficult time in that regard, so I’ve stayed somewhat close to home. I did get involved in a few small projects, mostly from necessity – my primary one being my book “The Story of a Nail” which I did as a sort of homage – one foot in the art world, one in the real world. I’m going to start working fulltime now though, and I plan to do it as long as it looks as good as I hope it will.
Where did you get the idea for this project?
I’m definitely not a big fan of the idea of doing any serious painting or painting-like activity at all; I’m not exactly a “painter”. I love making sculptures and drawing and sketching but I don’t usually think about it being done. I don’t do anything particularly “serious” or ambitious on a regular basis. I’m an art-miller; I love to do things like paint books and do some custom artwork and some small-scale sculpture… but, as much as I love those things, I’m just not into painting. Not only that, but I don’t really have any real desire to make a career out of that either; I just do what feels good and feels true to me.
Tell us about the project
I’ve always loved how real it got. The way it all came to terms with the “real” world really resonated with me. I really feel that my “toy” that I was using as an avatar at the time was also about real-world concerns: I was really excited about seeing things I’d never seen before.
For example, the way you used to “paint” things, the way you felt like you’d “painting” things, would just “flutter” and “explode” with a real-world intensity: the same way a good painting “explodes” with life. It was very much about how things worked at the time, as opposed to how things would in the future. The whole idea of “playing things with paint” was just a great shorthand for me to express something true about the real world we have today: a world that is constantly changing – and a world full of things that don’t always seem to fit in. That’s what really drew me to painting the way that it does.
