RG: Your most recent work is related to stickers and tattoos. Can you say something about what this work means for you?
DDL: This last Cross Contamination series is very much about lowbrow culture, specifically the sticker craze in the inner cities. I’ve studied the ubiquitous emergence of the tattoo, graffiti, and other cultural phenomenon, but the sticker more directly allows me to draw from the collective unconscious. As life, of living peacefully and safely gets more complicated, more problematic, more dire in the world, my practice of free minded drawing, that basic escape mechanism helps to keep me centered, sane, and dare I say, happy.
