At the Check Inn 99, in the new Soi 11 venue, the artist Peter Klashorst and author Christopher Moore were present to take questions about their video interaction “The Impatient Artist”.
In the film, Christopher puts questions to Peter while the artist works on a portrait of the author.
“How do you get into the flow of painting?”
“You have to become like an animal, a painting animal.”
“I’m waiting to die. I’m on a path to death. But death is too abstract an idea for me to deal with. Maybe it’s because I’m not a conceptual artist that the idea of death doesn’t exist for me!”
“I don’t care if fifty-thousand people are looking at my pictures online or if one person is looking – I would still be painting.”
“Your whole life is one big sausage, and each painting you make is one slice of that sausage.”
At the end of the presentation Christopher and Peter discussed how well the evening had gone.
