An Interview With Jenovefa Knoop

It’s a one-way universe, it flows in one way. It’s a waste to go against the grain. In fact, what makes a person an artist, in any field, is that they’re dancing with the grain of the universe, they’re extending the thoughts of God.

Learning To Die

In learning to give ourselves we learn both to live and to die — to die not only our final death, but those many deaths of daily living by which we become more alive.

Seth On Suicide

Seth suggests that all deaths are suicides in a sense, as all life forms choose their time of death on subconscious levels. But the context in which we choose to die is as significant and inter-connected to whom we are becoming as the context in which we choose to live.


Wood Sculpture By Andy Fleishman

My work is a universe complete with its own set of rules and regulations. My job is simply to follow the rules, which are unknowable, made of shadows, and are always changing. I know that they exist. It is not very different from life in general. For example: last week I was working out a detail on a sculpture that is made of nothing but curves that fold all over in a seemingly random way. I heard myself thinking, “This one small curve is obviously non-functional in the overall organization of this piece, and must be changed.”

My ego is of my mother’s making. I bear the residue of the Oedipus complex. It colors my relationships with other women. I hate my mother and I love her.
