Conversations with Contemporary Artists: R.H. Quaytman

“In [R.H.] Quaytman’s work, all glances are sidelong.” Steven Stern wrote for Frieze Magazine two years ago. He was describing the painter’s predilection for footnotes, or more specifically, her desire to move away from the painting as a singular object, of single-minded attention, to something a little more complex.

“I want to be in my work,” Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto tells Avant/Garde audiences, as he explains how he came to producing the saltscape installation works for which he’s now famous.

As they see it, Taste is not only an important part of the culinary arts, but also art history and theory, sociology, anthropology, as well as the cognitive, material, and biological sciences.

I relate to Scott Campbell. He started tattooing because he wanted to avoid getting a job at all costs. I started Art Fag City, because I’d been fired from so many gallery jobs I couldn’t bear the thought of taking another. I didn’t want to do anything but blog all day, Campbell didn’t want to do anything but draw pictures all day.

And so, that’s what Campbell does. In the latest issue of Avant Garde Diaries, we see him making reliefs out of printed dollar bills and incredibly detailed tattoos as he discusses what makes his studio run. In his case, music informs the mood and energy of his work, so he talks about Chances with Wolves, a well known New York based DJ duo.
