In the interview I explain my background in etching, watercolor, reverse painting, painting on canvas and my devotion to my journal as a seedbed for self knowledge. The Issue I appear in is #6 and of special interest I think to all lovers of Nick Bantock (and who isn't?) is a wonderful, in-depth interview in the same issue where he talks freely (and for a long time) about his process of painting and collage. He is a most fascinating artist with wonderful insights into the creative process and he is able to articulate quite successfully how he navigates his way through a painting as it is coming into being.
If you want to understand his definition of parallex view and how it affects your experience of being alive, you will want to sit with this DVD and listen to his fascinating ideas. He does a great job of walking you through several painting/collages he has created and deconstructing them for your understanding. It made me want to grab my collage stash and get to work.
You can see a video clip of Nick here (scroll down until you see his face) and you can order your own copy of the DVD here. I'm going to go watch my copy again now; I thought Karen Landey, the videographer who has worked so artfully on this project, has done a remarkable job and I think the results are worthwhile.
Now the clip of me:
