osicranharas asked: What were you thinking when you were painting "Merging the Phantom"?

I was thinking about the “shadow self” or aspects of ourselves that we suppress. These shadows may be dark, negative and murky, but often they are also the positive, brilliant parts of our being that we choose to ignore and push down. Sometime we are so successful at suppressing and pushing these away that they leave our internal landscape and start to appear in our everyday reality- looking right back at us to be seen. The Phantom for me is symbolic of that other self- a self filled with the things I strive to incorporate back into my present awareness.

ocean-flaws-deactivated20131129 asked: how where you able to achieve such neat thin brush strokes for hair? i'm finding it impossible with oil paint :(

I use a long, thin synthetic bristle brush- I even take a razor blade and cut it’s thickness in half. The most important aspect is using super thin paint- I thin mine down simply using terpeniod. The paint needs to be thin and light and the brush full in order to pull a long line across the canvas. 

Hope that helps- it all just takes some practice:)

cixeled asked: I'm stuck in a rut in college where my mental ambition exceeds what I can actually create. How do you deal with that compromise?

 I am still dealing with it. If you’re lucky, your imagination and mental imagery will always be one or two steps ahead of you- we strive towards perfect execution and that is the key to a long and rewarding relationship with your work. My best advice is to just keep exploring and making work- just make make make. Making the work is really the only way. In the process you will find your natural strengths/style and your mental imagery will start to transform and reflect your personal voice. AND a rut just means you’re about to transition to a new level. In the mean time, do some meditating, working out and talking art with fellow students. The ideas will start to flow again and your hand will catch up.

Visiting Artists Jenny Morgan and David Mramor will give a lecture at Mitchell Auditorium, Seigfred Hall 5th Floor, 5PM, Monday, March 11th.
