Artist Interview: T J Donovan

T J Donovan, a South Dakota native finishing his studies in Chicago, discusses his work and philosophies on art making. Donovan likes to preserve a space for abstract making and direct address in his work. He believes that working through a creative block is important, and feels that action will automatically "yield to something different." Listen in as he also describes his experience on playing with the work in different contexts, and how that it may or may not change how the work is received, both for him and the viewer. Audio interview can be found below. (some strong language)
