I often get asked why I enjoy graveyards and ghosts so much, and I usually don’t know quite how to answer. Recently while at the American Visionary Art Museum I discovered an artist whose work revolved around death in a similar way. The artist’s name is Jim Doran and he had a quote next to his work that “it’s also very optimistic and hopeful. Our story doesn’t end when our physical form expires. Love transcends death.” I felt a connection to his work and statement because when I make work that focuses on death it feels more whimsical and optimistic than sad.
