A few weeks ago, Kadar Brock and I exchanged studio visits. I alluded to the meaning inherent in how an object is made and how materials are used, and Kadar explained some of the ideas that infuse his work, like magic and Eastern philosophy.
After spending a couple hours together, it became clear that Kadar and I talk about our work differently. He's more likely to talk head-on about what his work means, whereas I'd rather let viewers tease out the meaning on their own. Nonetheless, we found plenty of common ground in our approaches to painting itself.
