Robert Seydel: A Picture Is Always a Book

Featured image is "journal page" from Robert Seydel: A Picture is Always a Book, Siglio's follow-up to 2011's highly-coveted Book of Ruth and the accompanying publication to the Seydel show currently on view at the Queens Museum. In an interview, contributor Savina Velkova asks Seydel (1960–2011) about the productive function of Ruth Greisman, his alter ego and the "author" of the journal pages. His response: "Well, I love artists who contain a mixed pedigree, or who are contaminated in some way, who contain contradictory impulses. And I’m particularly drawn to an image of the artist as non-professional or anti-professional, outside the sphere of trade and the economies of art and product, which is a word I hate as applied to art. Ruth kind of begins in that place—she says, for instance, 'The galleries are made for fashion. Nothing I make is.'"
