I think we're living in this mass fetishization of creativity.
Eating alone is no longer a social paradigm, but a chance to disconnect.
Marina van Goor
It's hard to create moments of disconnection.
Part of being a good artist, or even a good human, is to travel more.
You don't know the things that I've turned down or said no to to pursue this kind of work.
I don't feel like I ever have to doctor my work to fit in or compromise for money or gratitude.
For some people [becoming a great painter] is about selling lots of paintings or fitting into a genre or even training towards that. None of that interests me. I just like making things I like. It's just a coincidence that people even like it.
Behind this facade of minimalism is a mess.
For me, minimalism is a subtractive process.
Nobody wakes up in the morning thinking, "I can't wait to crank out a steaming pile of crap today." And yet it happens.
That's what creativity is—assaulting uncertainty on a daily basis.
As I've been doing art, there's been this process of un-learning design.
Curiosity fuels discovery.
Somewhere in adulthood we begin to shed our childhood curiosity. This is a shame because curiosity fuels discovery.
Minimalism is asking what is important and letting it be just that.
The road to riches is paved in unrelenting hard work.
It's really important to have the freedom to make mistakes and have the opportunity and space to do that.
You have to put the work in to maintain that freedom.
Two years ago, I quit my job and decided to put all my eggs in one basket.
How can we make objects where every piece is essential?
More minimal has the potential to lead to more freedom.
What does one really need to have a good life?
Busy is a way of organizing your priorities.
If it's not hard, and fun, and intense, and emotional, and you are crying, and you are laughing and... if it's not that rich, in all senses, then it's not worth doing.
La sexualidad no es nada más que nuestra identidad o que la identidad más personal esta absolutamente emparentada y profundamente relacionada con la sexualidad.
Minimalism is about balance, about mindfulness... that it is not in relation to more or not in relation to less. It in itself has its place that it's process demands different things for different people.
