>kickn' it up a notch with the Freud! great stuff.
Yes, I may do this every now and then. Not necessarily with Freud, but
with other references, just to open things up but only if it feels relevant.
>the truth is, I started art school in the 90s
>and all of my profs taught identity politics work.
>Actually my first EVER studio class was called
>women in art (I was the only man in the course).
>So starting out I always felt as though I wasn't
>allowed to make art. I wasn't a victim of any
>societal prejudices or discrimination, I was a
>very happy privileged white man with very few cares.
With identity politics being such a primary influence, it sounds like
your art education was a complex yet insightful beginning. I can imagine
that in order to find a voice for your work, there has been much
re-evaluation taking place.
>The type of work I make now, the type that casts
>me as an ignorant/naive modern artist playing with
>technology, was developed to try and create some
>justification for myself in an ocean of those more
>deserving than I.
Do you think that going through the re-evaluative process of
justification has helped or hindered your practice, in regards to your
creative-identity and approach to what your artwork could of been?
