Question 15: What motivates you to pursue a career as an artist? Why make art?

Transcription


Personally, I have no difficulties. I walk into my studio and I am fine. That’s all I need. There are things in there I started yesterday but that I have not finished yet. Most likely, there are things I will finish today. Others, I will complete tomorrow. Yesterday I got something going, and so on. It is not only on the spot, it opens up a time span larger than the moment you are living now. But the moment in which we live, that’s the one I focus on, it’s also the moment that allows me to escape. We can escape, we live one second at a time, so if we end up escaping one second, then we’ll be all right. It’s a matter of back and forth, a focus on the time we have to make the pieces.
