“THE FIRST RULE OF PAINTING IS TO TAKE EVERYONE ELSE OUT OF THE EQUATION. I AM THE VIEWER, SO IDON’T UNDERESTIMATE MY VIEWERS. THEY SEE EVERYTHING AND I JUST HAVE TO ASSUME THAT THEY ARE ME. I CAN’T PAINT FOR ANYONE ELSE. IT’S ALL ABOUT HAVING THE COURAGE TO SAY THIS IS FINISHED AND THEY HAVE TO KNOW THAT, I AM THE BOSS IN PAINTING. ITS LIKE BEING A SOLDIER BECAUSE I HAVE TO BE HARD AS FUCK TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THESE THINGS AND LET THEM GO.”

” AFTER COVERING YOUR BODY WITH YOUR STORY, I TAKE PICTURES OF YOU TO LATER CLEAN YOU IN THE SHOWER. IT’S ALMOST LIKE HAVING AN AFFAIR, WHERE EVERYTHING THAT WE DID OR TALK ABOUT, GOES DOWN THE DRAIN. THEN USUALLY I’LL DRESS YOU AND YOU GO BACK TO YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE.”

” TOGETHER WITH KUNSTHALL OSLO AND MUNCH MUSEET IN MOTION, WE HAVE AN EXHIBITION PROGRAMME ATTRACTING A HIGHLY VARIED AND BROAD ART CROWD TO THIS AREA. AND A BIT FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD THE MUNCH MUSEUM AND MAIN LIBRARY TOGETHER WITH THE OPERA HOUSE, ALL THAT WILL FORM A RARE AND POWERFUL CENTRE FOR THE ARTS. I BELIEVE OTHER GALLERIES WILL FOLLOW SOON TOO.”

“Suppose I were to give you a key ring […] with a hundred keys, and I was to tell you that one of these keys will unlock it, this door we’re imagining opening in onto all you want to be, as a player. How many of the keys would you be willing to try?’
[…]
‘Well I’d try every darn one,’ Rader tells Lyle.
[…]
‘Then you are willing to make mistakes, you see. You are saying you will accept 99% error. The paralyzed perfectionist you say you are would stand there before that door. Jingling the keys. Afraid to try the first key.” 
― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest 

CREEPER CREEPER BY DAMEHT

” A NEW VIDEO FOR THEIR SINGLE “CREEPER CREEPER” AND IT’S A CAMPY BLAST. TAKING CULTURAL HINTS FROM THE LIKES OF STEVE STRANGE, SOO THE CAT WOMAN AND NEW ROMANTICISM, THE VIDEO IS A VISUAL TREAT AND AN APPROPRIATE ODE FOR A BAND KNOWN BEST FOR THEIR SECRET SHOWS.” NYLON MAGAZINE

DT 500 MAG SHARES THE CONTEMPORARY ART CONTEXT OF MORTEN VISKUM AND REQUIRES MORE ATTENTION AND REFLECTION OVER TIME, IN ORDER FOR SEVERAL LAYERS OF MEANING TO BE ABLE TO EMERGE. WE MUST HAVE A DEEP AND HONEST DIALOGUE WITH THE ART WORK IN ORDER TO GET ANYTHING OUT OF IT.

” I JUST HOPE TO CONVEY SOME EMOTION TO THE VIEWERS. IF THIS HAPPENS, YOU CAN SAY THAT I HAVE ACHIEVED MY PURPOSE. I TRY TO BE VERY HONEST WITH EMOTIONS THAT I APPLY IN MY PHOTOGRAPHS. I USE PHOTOGRAPHY AS THE BEST WAY TO SHOW THE FEELINGS I CAN NOT EXPRESS IN WORDS OR DEEDS.”

ANTHONY LISTER THE LOWBROW-O

THIS EPISODE IS ALSO LEGENDARY ABOUT A GRAFFITI WRITER RISK, NEW IMAGE ART GALLERY OWNER MARSEA GOLDBERG, DIRECTOR MARK SIMPSON, AND PERFORMANCE ARTIST ARIEL BRICKMAN TALKS ABOUT LISTER’S INCREDIBLE STYLE AND DEDICATION TO HIS TRUE LOVE, ARTISTIC EXPRESSION.

” I DDD er alles mening viktig enten du er “rookie” eller “O.G” (Original Gangster). Det er en av de tingene jeg setter mest pris på i DDD, men det er til gjengjeld ganske krevende, kanskje spesielt for en “nykomling”. Men øvelse gjør mester, og å bli utfordret på disse tingene hver dag samtidig som man får observere andre med erfaring jobbe så fokusert, er utrolig god trening.”
