Quick Draw Artist Interview #26: Carla Danes

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 specifically for publication on this blog.

Quick: home. Then there was the time everyone agreed to meet at the restaurant afterwards. I showed up to find you waiting outside just as perplexed. No one was inside so we carried on. On our own. The first was no longer touring yet if the second was was in town it could be planned. Across the movie theatre isle; walking in as it dimmed. Same name; two locations. You kept your word. Draw: art about art.

Decoration is related 
to fashion
but it is not
the same thing.
Humans have always decorated themselves
and their
Men love it too, but in Western society,
we get to dominate
