Holy god.

I’ve had some bad weeks, but this one takes the cake.

Anyway. A flurry of stuff has come together – stuff in my head, stuff in my life (both professionally and personally). Art shit, school shit, life shit. All of which has gotten me thinking about my process, my practice, and so forth.

Some new revelations and some old ones:

Precious vs. casual.
Personal vs. political.
Raw vs. cooked.
Painting vs. drawing.
Text vs. image.
The artist vs. the audience.
Life vs. art. (Sometimes also the reverse.)

This weekend, no more preparing for shows or anything like that. I just need to sit down and make my damn work and say goodbye to everything else for a moment, just to remind myself why the hell I do all of this to begin with.

Tomorrow: MOMA. Sunday: studio, all day, just fucking around and making stuff. I need that.
