A few months back we mentioned the new movie Beautiful Losers. VBS TV has extensive video interview/pieces with Losers Thomas Campbell and Barry McGee. Aaron Rose interviewed Barry McGee on, Art Talk!, but since McGee is not a fan of interviews nor of showing his face, he took the interview and he animated it with classic McGee characters. So the interview about art actually become part of the art itself. We heart Barry.
Tyler Mason interviewed artist/film maker Thomas Campbell and here’s a glimpse into his process:
The state of Thomas Campbell’s desk says a lot about his work habits. It is covered in scrapes of paper, paint, photos, leaves, pieces of thread, books, doodles, and cups full of brushes, pens, and pencils. The pile is six inches deep and covers the entire desk, spilling onto the walls and floor and growing by a factor of 12.5 percent every day (we guestimate). He is working on so many different projects all at once we’re not sure how he keeps it all straight. Some end up getting finished, framed, and hung on a white wall, while others are dropped to the floor and maybe picked up days or years later and turned into something totally new.
