As always, Art Crawl brought so many interesting people through my studio this weekend, and I was able to have some good conversations with many of them. One of the conversations I had was about the way that I create conversation with my art. I have something to talk about, so I create a painting or print or sculpture, and put it out into the world. People will see this work and respond, but usually not to me. I imagine myself and the viewer standing on different planets hundreds of light years away. The first person says something, then dies. The second receives the message and writes a response then sends it and dies. The first persons decedents receive the response and so on. The part we play as individuals in the conversation is a small one, but the culture as a whole will remember and expand upon it, and therefore it is meaningful.
