May Preview Questions With Kylie
How do you describe your work to your parents?
I dont really. My parents haven’t seen most of my work. I usually keep it pretty basic. Like I made a painting or a sculpture. My parents like when my work is pretty and colorful— except, for example, I made a large scale painting of meat and my mom thought it was of a stormy sky and after I told her it was meat she said she would keep thinking of it as a sky.
Do you have a favorite childhood/family photograph?
I love all old family photos. Maybe especially of me in Brazil as a child because they’ve become some kind of proof that I’m really Brazilian.
Is there a perfect photograph you can picture in your head but can’t realize?
This is constantly my problem with photography. I don’t think I’ve ever been able to create a photograph as good as the image in my head. Whereas with painting, my paintings have more of an ability to surprise me and be better than I could have imagined.
What is the worst thing you have ever eaten or drank?
When I was little, I made a PB & J sandwich out of mud and two maple leafs.
What are your thoughts on setting limits within your work? Do you practice this? How?
“I make up the rules of a game, then i attempt to play it. If I seem to be losing, I change the rules.”-Michael Snow I’d like to try to work this way but I can’t seem to create limits or make rules when I work. Most often I am trying to work with no limits. My only rule is to make a lot and then some more.
