Other People’s Pixels’ Featured Artist Blog Features RWK
As we approach the opening of Ryan Wilson Kelly’s exhibition at NAPOLEON this May First Friday, we were pleased that the smart folks at Other People’s Pixels agree he is the cat’s pajamas. Click the link below to get some amazing RWK gems like:
“It makes me laugh to think of Walt Whitman as a hyper-masculine icon. Perhaps through the virility of his poetry and the awesomeness of his beard he could be grouped this way.”
“I am focusing here on the end of Cope’s life, where he died alone and broke in a crowded row-house in Philadelphia, piled high with papers and specimens, plagued by nightmares and fever dreams that he was being eaten alive by dinosaurs.”
“I used to have the feeling that after making an object, no matter how long it took, when I was finished, the object was dead to me. I think that, in some way, by creating objects that are meant to be performed with, I’m holding them in this creative suspended animation.”
Tantalizing? We thought so. Do read the whole interview with OPP and be sure to check out the show this Friday!
