Being in the press is an odd experience. I'm not really famous but seem to have been in the media a few times recently. The thing about being a painter is that you always feel that your work should do the talking and that me, and my personal life, are not really worth discussing.
Doing press is necessary though. If people are aware of you then when you do show your stuff, maybe they'll come take a look, and that's what you really want as an artist, people to see your work regardless of whether they think you're dick or not. Ultimately only your closest friends are qualified to make a judgement about you anyway.....and mine all think I'm a dick.
The thing that is interesting to me is that whatever you say, it's never represented quite the way it was intended. The interviews are edited and sometimes your original point may be missed but i guess that's the choice you make, to be interviewed or not, regardless of how it's handled.
Better to be in the press than out of it is my conclusion.
Anyway, here's a few recent ones. As you can see, I'm working that LV suit big time!
