    Another fantastic interview, Duncan. Great subject, great interview, great pacing.


  2. I got to listen to the whole thing last night, stuck in a traffic jam on the highway to Liechtenstein, going to teach painting. Saved my night! Cured my road rage!

    Anyway, really a great discussion. I’d forgotten how interesting Rochelle is when speaking. Great stuff — point on about the work, good observations and questions Duncan, (if only I could have gotten you to such questions in my interview —!).

    Hi Rochelle, by the way, in case you read this. I haven’t seen you since I visited with Christoph Keller and Jan Heller Levi back when they were falling in love! I’m happy you have had a good website for a while now too, as I have sent students and artist friends to seek you out and that helps a lot. Hope to see you again soon. Coming to Basel for the fair?

  3. Rochelle Feinstein’s comment about the grid of a Mondrian compared to the grid of a newspaper layout reminds me of Michel de Certeau’s concepts of strategy and tactics. “Aesthetics” being the strategy. Which for me doubles back on itself to address audience and viewer. The interview had a nice weave and it was meaty.
    This interview was a meaty weave.
