it’s genetic, a chemical thing. for me it’s a force of habit. the brain has been wired to be comfortable with putting things out there. to let the work be itself.

It’s not art if the world (or at least a tiny portion of it) isn’t transformed in some way. And it’s not art if it’s not generous. And most of all, it’s not art if there’s no risk. The risk isn’t the risk of financial ruin (though that might be part of it). No, the risk is the risk of rejection. Of puzzlement. Of stasis. Art requires the artist to care, and to care enough to do something when he knows it might not work.

Sometimes art doesn’t make sense. It comes from the heart, it doesn’t have to make sense.

Picasso always saw the creative act in terms of the procreative act. he would use one to fortify the other.

I feel that works of art are opportunity for people to construct meaning, so I don’t usually tell what they mean. It conveys to people that they have to participate.

Do you think an artist should make his/her own work with their own hands?

Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.

Hi Tumblr!

I NEED YOUR HELP. I’m trying to raise $30,000 in 30 days for GLIDE in San Francisco by engaging users with photography and technology.

If each of my Tumblr followers donates the minimum, $10, we’ll hit the goal! Please help me achieve this!

If you’re 30 please join the interactive constellation! THANK YOU!
