ABOUT 


Rodger Stevens was born in Brooklyn, New York, where he spent most of his childhood playing in the street and drawing. After receiving degrees in both Economics and Fine Art – and working like mad – he is now an internationally exhibited artist. Rodger still lives in New York, where he continues to work like mad alongside his artist wife, Johanna Goodman, and his two incandescent little kids.








EYE-LIKEY CHATS WITH RODGER STEVENS

E. L.: Typical work day?

R. S.: Seventeen hours of doing things with and for my kids and my work, often very gladly – my wife and I laugh hard and fight here and there. Scotch at the end of it.




E. L.: How do you stay inspired?

R. S.: The mind is a bottomless pit of mediocre ideas that can easily be mistaken for lightning bolts. That seems to suffice.




E. L.: What are you currently working on now?

R. S.: Difficult to describe objects, chiefly made of wood or wire, that are intended to surprise and delight their maker and their audience.

E. L.: Something you do in your spare time?

R. S.: Move around.



E. L.: What do you listen to when you work?

R. S.: Non-fiction.






E. L.: Favorite place you ever traveled to

R. S.: The Metropolitan Museum of Art.





E. L.: Your favorite cartoon character?

R. S.: My wife.




E. L.: Where would you like to visit that you haven’t yet?

R. S.: Imperial Rome, around 20 BC.




E. L.: Top 3 Favorite website/blogs ?

R. S.: YouTube – you can listen yourself silly there. Blogs seem very nice for their creators.






E. L.: Some favorite artists past + present?

R. S.: These people, living and long gone, are all over the place, but I don't know their names. Who made all that mind-blowing Aztec jewelry? Or those fucked up 16th century Wheellock pistols?







E. L.: Favorite project you ever did?

R. S.: I fixed a little Calder mobile before a Sotheby's auction.
BTW,
NICE JOB R.S. + COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT BETTER MYSELF. 
XOXO, SANDY

E. L.: Favorite Movie or book?

R. S.: Like choosing a favorite sensation. In the name of just shutting up and answering the question, I'll say: 2001 A Space Odyssey and Kon Tiki.




E. L.: Dream project for the future?

R. S.: Something that involved traveling to my favorite places with my family and eating outstanding food for free.




E. L.: If you weren’t an artist, what would you like to be?

R. S.: A highly sought after advisor, maybe of some sort of botanical matters, who was outside most of the time and often on a bike.





E. L.: Best advice you can give a young artist looking to get started in the field?

R. S. : Work more than you want to and soon you will want to work more than you can.



KEEP UP THE BEAUTIFUL WORKS R. S. !
