Attempts at finding answers to some ghastly stock questions:
* Why do you create art and what does it mean to you?
* How does the creation of art make you feel? What emotions do you wish to convey?
Temporarily distracted. Any and all of them.
* What inspires you? How are your inspirations expressed in your work?
Death and doom and meaninglessness and beauty and stoicism.
* What message are you trying to convey to the viewer?
There is no point. But it's sometimes pretty.
* How much time is spent creating your pieces?
* How is your work a reflection of you?
It has its ups and downs.
* What artists (living or dead) have influenced you?
Everything influences. Not just 'artists'.
* What is your vision/philosophy?
* What are your goals for the future?
* What are your techniques and style and how do these relate to the medium?
Intuition. Click. Kill the colour.
* How do your techniques and style relate to your vision/philosophy?
B&W suits me - it renders the world more real in the atomic sense.
And a closing remark from K:
"For someone who is a pragmatic determinist nihilist David has a remarkable ability to capture life. His pictures are beautiful and full of meaning and love, even if the man himself likes to come across as a sour old bastard." Thanks dear, this really made me smile.
I can see I need to work on this a bit. Anyway, cut fourteen hinge mounts this afternoon. My back hurts. It was hurting before, has been for a few weeks.
Link to the show if anyone wants to come along and ask 'why do you take pictures?'
