Many of the questions that inform my work arise from the difficulty of linking the notion of art-making with the notion of making an honest living.

Today the sun is shining in the studio and I’ve decided something that seems important.

Many of the questions that inform my work arise from the difficulty of linking the notion of art-making with the notion of making an honest living.

Likewise, many of the anxieties I have about artwork originate in an uneasy translation of ‘artwork’ into ‘livelihood.’ There’s a basic dilemma, I think, between the superfluous production of the artworld and the notion of global precarity. How do artists navigate this? And then, how can the work itself address this dilemma and provide some kind of solution?

    I couldn’t agree more. Throughout history, and perhaps even more so today, it’s always been an ongoing dilemma, a constant challenge most artists have to abide by, often regardless of their art form.
