"No rituals other then to always feel very grateful for the opportunity to lead a

creative life and that gets celebrated every day"




A: What brought you into art?


J: As a kid my father took me for a visit to the famous sculptor Jacques Lipschitz

home and studio. Jacques had me help him by adding clay to a huge bronze

sculpture he was making of JFK and I fell in love with the idea of making art.



A: What inspires you the most?


J: I’m inspired by nature, my spiritual and meditation practice, science and love.



A: Do you have any specific rituals while working(creating)?


J: No rituals other then to always feel very grateful for the opportunity to lead a

creative life and that gets celebrated every day.



A: What would you recommend to someone new to art (an artist or just an admirer), what to begin with?


J: I think the most important thing to do is to always make the art about something

that interests you.



A: Your top 3 adjectives related to art?


J: Expressive

Aesthetic

Evocative




A: The best angle to look at art is from?


J: In sculpture – there is ideally no best angle to look at the art as it should be

experienced from all angles.



A: The Perfect phrase to start any conversation about art is:..?


J: There is no perfect way to start a conversation about art. Let your genuine

response to a work start the dialogue and go from there.



A: Must-read books to talk about art (or do we even need them)?


J: Any book that can help you to be more aware and open to the magic in life that

surrounds us. The more open the viewer is – the greater the chance that they will

find the magic in the artwork.



A: What would it be if you could change one thing in the art world?


J: There are many art worlds – each with their advantages and problems.

There is no one thing to change in my opinion - the art world is always changing

on its own.



A: Please, share your favorite quote (not necessarily related to art)


J: “If you want your art to be noticed – make art that can’t be ignored”

- Steve Martin
