The most useful tool is probably digital media—Photoshop, digital cameras, and advanced editing equipment. I feel sorry for artists that don’t take advantage of these tools.

When I met Jim I was painting objects that were strewn on the floor. I don't remember the specifics of the studio visit other than the fact that he offered me a show at the Everson. I was so excited about it that it must have overshadowed the rest of the visit. He hung the show in such an interesting way. All of the paintings were installed close to the floor. He also thought to include work by my students from the Jamesville Penitentiary. My work was upstairs and their work was downstairs in the lobby.
