Greetings Interweb! Ellyn here-- your WAXworks Co-Producer. I'm mega-excited to be bringing WAX into the 21st century (admittedly in a very small way) via our very first blog platform: the WAXblog.
The plan, as far as I've ideated thus far, is that this will primarily be a platform for us to share exciting tidbits about our featured artists. We'll kick things off with JAVIER PADILLA, an artist in our February 15th showcase.
Here's what Javier shared with us earlier this month:
WAX: Where do you find inspiration for your work? Or what motivates your work?
JP: Concrete things and words inspire me, I take that and translate it into movement. My motivation for creating work is storytelling. I like taking things that are obvious to the eye, but most probably overlooked, and show them in a new light.
WAX: If you could only use three words to describe your work, what would they be?
JP: Quirky, narrative, fun!
WAX: What’s the last book you read?
JP: The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
WAX: Anything else you want to share with us?
JP: Can’t wait to showcase with other amazing artists at WAXworks! Yay, dance!
Thanks Javier! We hope we'll see you this weekend at Triskelion Arts NORTH 11TH STREET location.
