Question: Who is your favorite artist of todays time?
A very hard question to answer with just one name! I think I’ll have to resort to a few. First of all for non visual artists: Theater artist Richard Foreman and filmaker Guy Maddin are two people that I wish I was. In terms of visual artists, Robert Gober is someone who i think is at the top of his game and making some of the most challenging work there is. Same for Louise Bourgeois and Martin Puryear. Vija Celmins, Amy Sillman and Judie Bamber are my favorite painters. Rob Clarke makes drawings that I wish I had made, and my pal D-L Alvarez is one of the most original thinkers I know.
That’s today’s partial list anyway. Thanks for asking.
