I was a die-hard silk screener in art school. I started as a painter, but moved on to printmaking because I found more freedom within the constraints of the process. I found that thinking slowly in stages, one layer at a time, helped me to focus.
I was at a friend’s house recently and found myself lost in some other world, staring at this top print, Drifters, which was hanging on the wall. I did it 13 years ago and haven’t seen it in so long, so I was amazed by how cinematic it is and related to all of the photography and video that I’ve done since.
