regretful back end.

-So I understand your poetic licence writing about the show,
but let’s be concrete: Why the decision to show explicitly 18 of them ?
-Well, almost all the paintings in the show have been in process over several years,
moving from the institutional cellar to the sunlit studio, transported back
to a basement not my own, eventually arriving in my apartment – sent down to the cellar and drag up, yet again, to a point of finalization.
-And, the opening is starting on the eve of my 36th birthday,
so at some point during the… one night only show, there will be
a type of graduation, if you will, and … (silence).
-And 18 is the half of 36.
-Right, what I actually wanted to say was that I graduated from highschool on my 18th birthday. There’s this great picture of me and my mom taken that night. That year I decided to go to art school.
-So do you see this as initiating a turning point for yourself?
