Mr. Craig Coté
For me, making art is a bit like fishing. You try different baits/materials and offer up different types of presentations until you succeed at the desired goal. Both involve aspects of searching into a murky depth, and both require a certain amount of sensitivity. I suppose the main difference is that fishing relies a bit less on a sense of sight and more heavily on touch, especially when the fishing is slow rather than aggressive. I think that in both activities I am attracted to an aspect of mystery, of what will appear from those murky depths. Quite often when I am fishing, and the fishing is slow, I think about making art. When I am making art, I quite often think about fishing.
