Dean Young on painters and production

6 Jan

I’ve always envied visual artists for an obvious, constantly available opportunity to interact with the medium in a primal, physical way. Paint is always ready to be paint, thrown, slathered, sprayed, blotted up. Even in the most elementary energetic exchange, something is always created. Drop cloths are always beautiful. In fact, it is impossible NOT  to make something with materials even if the act of using those materials is contrary to intended, conventional usage, even if it resides in refusal. Any act, even one that seems antithetical to our notions of art production, still winds up with something. From there on it is a complex social, economic, personal matter as to whether that something is SOMETHING.
