There are two new interviews with me and my work is in a group show in Brooklyn.  Interview number 1 was done by NYFA (the New York Foundation on the Arts).  It is part of their ongoing series The Artists Life.  Past interviews include Vito Acconci, Kate Gilmore and Kalup Linzy.  In my interviews you’ll get to see: a formative photo I took of Punks in a fountain in Trafalgar Square, 45’s from Chicago bands and cameras I used to shoot with. I talk about my Revolutionary Archive paintings and give a tour of Ft. Greene Park. All in about 6 minutes. Hope you like it.


The show is a 30th anniversary showing at BRIC Rotunda Gallery in Brooklyn.  Details below:
