Mike Dewey: The Art of Observation
[Painting] Mike Dewey
A friend had just bought his first house, and he asked me to make a painting for him. I was living in a friend's windowless basement at the time. Your psyche does weird things when you move from sleeping under the stars in a meadow to a basement, so it seemed fitting to me to do most of the painting with a spoon instead of a brush. I guess that this was different enough from what my friend was expecting that he never picked it up. Years later I'm still not sure if I love it or hate it.
