1xRUN Thru Interview
Spiritual Migration by Defer
1xRUN: Tell us about this piece, is it part of a recent series or theme?
Defer: This particular piece is not part of a series or theme but rather a combination of elements that I use in my works – lettering, abstract, motion, layers. I also revisited my use of elements of the animal world – birds migrating.
1xRUN: What materials did you use and when was this piece created?
Defer: I used acrylic on canvas. I created this piece about a month ago, this year 2013.
1xRUN: Tell us how the idea and execution came about?
Defer: The idea for this piece came about when I was thinking about how birds migrate and how it correlates to the human spirit. I though about how different life experiences can bring about spiritual change or a spiritual migration to or from a certain place.
1xRUN: What is unique about this piece compared to your other work?
Defer: What makes this piece unique, its the first time Ive painted a group of birds in migration.
1xRUN: Why should people buy this print?
Defer: I think people should buy this print because it is a piece that I did specifically for print matter that could be affordable for the masses.
1xRUN: Describe this piece in one gut reaction word?
1xRUN: What have you been up to lately? What’s coming up?
Defer: This summer was busy – I did a show in Hawaii, released a book with Big Sleeps entitled “Kill 2 Succeed” – which is available at www.letterstoliveby.com. Right now I’m actually working on some pieces for a group show in Palm Springs entitled “The Fifth Element”.
