One of the many great things about being at the helm of this magazine is that I get to choose who we interview. I love finding out more about the lives, personalities and idiosyncrasies of artists. Sometimes I read a quote from an interviewee and it makes me think differently about their work. In my mind I’ve found a link between who they are and what I see in their art.
It happened in this month’s interview with Scott M Fischer (page 34). He said: “I’d rather go too far than never push the envelope.” Placed next to his images, I feel as if the art makes more sense. It’s the same with Phil Hale (page 50), an extraordinary artist whom I’ve admired for a long time. Knowing more about his journey and process, I now weave this into the work that I see. I hope that you enjoy these interviews as much as I did. Please let me know who we should interview next.
