CW: What is your favorite work from your oeuvre?
JVL: I try not to determine favorites or bests, people looking usually decide that for themselves. I’m usually already over whatever I’m working on a few weeks after it’s done. I’ve not regressed into anything, which is more my concern—keeping momentum forward.
CW: I can certainly respect that. For the benefit of the folks at home, I’ll attach an image of one of my many favorites from your body of work: Crossfader I. Finally, what are you up to now?
JVL: My life seems to be heading back towards academics, at least for the upcoming school year. I have plans to return to school to either teach or study a Drawing MFA, as well as a unique residency opportunity with a small museum starting this summer. Time is still winning the war – I’m in particularly short supply at the moment and hope to have more concrete news to share in a few months. Fingers crossed.
