How do you define loss? I define loss as losing a good friend (in terms of dying). Losing the fight against ordering a burger again in the Chateau Marmont. Losing in any competition and becoming second. There are so many definitions of loss to me—maybe too many, now that I think about it… Shit.
What would you like to be reborn as? A Super Nerd Unicorn, of course. What a question.
Describe the unique power paintings have over our emotions? The unique power painting has: A lot of cheese [and] hot sauce and it will burn twice once you eat it, and the second time you will know once the emotions kick in.
Do you find creativity flows easier or with more obstruction as you age? Creativity is a normal given thing to people. Some have it, some don’t. I think it’s a God-given thing and it comes natural to some [and] to some not. To me it’s just doing what I have to do, to do it and have fun.
What to you defines a strong work ethic? Not [starting to drink] before five p.m. and [skating] the ramp in my backyard all day.
If a piece of music could accompany your current show at Ibid, what would it be? Beethoven’s "Eroica." It fits perfectly. Is it the third symphony or the fourth? I always mix [that] up.
