If there's two things that interest me more than anything it's change and process. Habits are just habits, but deconditioning, even if you know what needs to change is a chip, chip chip chipping away. It's what practice (spiritual, musical or otherwise) is about in my book. That said, I haven't been soldiering through having a bad cold during the past day and a half. So I've been crying uncle and taking inspiration instead, and reading a lot about other artists, and sleeping. Interesting article on artmaking in 1/28 New Yorker. Calvin Tomkins profiles John Currin and his pornographic painting. Also enjoying the current issue of Bomb on all things Brazil. Both New York I know, I know, but I've yet to find a California equivalent that equals either periodical. Continuing with NYer artists, I've been tipped off to Jeffrey Lewis, several times in the past week. He's at Noise Pop in March.
