In order to keep my creative tank chugging along I like to fill it with all sorts of visual fuel. This "Tuesday's Artist" thing is my way of sharing some of the artists that inspire and delight me. I asked them to do a little finish-this-sentence sort of mini-interview so we might get to know them a little better.
This week's spotlight is shining on Kelly Puissegur. I really like her less-than-pretty but oh-so-fun work. Love her gritty layered textures, limited palette, and her childlike sense of proportion.
If I wasn't an artist maybe I'd be a writer or gardener.
Today, I'm listening to The Duchess and The Duke, Lou Reed, Lil Wayne, Alex Turner, The Rolling Stones.
I'm really good at lying.
I'd like to be better at making decisions.
When I was a kid I was very dirty. I hated to take baths and brush my teeth.
I hate it when I'm wrong.
My workspace is not too neat and not too messy but just right to spark creativity (or so I tell myself).
Right now, I'm really into the movie Adaptation and the book Submarine by Joe Dunthorne.
I hope that my art gets better so that one day I'll be satisfied.
