Quick Draw Artist Interview #16: Janna Watson

Quick Draw Artist Interviews are a series of interviews conducted by Otino Corsano using Facebook's IM Chat feature. Spontaneous conversations with international artists are recorded and documented. New “Quick Draw Artist Interviews” will be posted on my new Toronto Artpost blog:
Otino personally thanks Lee Ka-sing for welcoming him back to Toronto Artpost.
Quick: drops. It wasn’t the first time it started to rain like this here. teem. It’s strange how first everyone was just fine in the lake; yet the concept of soaked is altogether different in a downpour. They run; we freeze; chemise evanescence; dissolved; just real and raw. Draw: art about art.

Janna Watson is a recent graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, and has already begun building an impressive list of exhibitions. Using a hybridizing and synthetic set of tactics, her work is intended to (con) fuse categories of painterly and graphic, landscape and body, 2D and 3D, to blend tension and coherence as one. Watson's most recent solo exhibition opens at Bau-Xi Gallery, Vancouver in June 2011.

It happened
over years of getting into
the work; letting myself
mistakes and trusting
those mistakes.

I’m happy to hear it...
I think you really get it. I think a lot
about ego
and having
humility and letting spirit
in and out and I want to reflect spirit in my work.
