Speaking of the featured image, "The Painter and His Muse" (1996), in Pressed Wafer's new release, How I Became a Painter: Trevor Winkfield in Conversation with Miles Champion, Winkfield calls the painting "a kind of sop to the popular misconception that the artist's vivid imagination must be the result of something else—some external stimulus. All the techniques I used to construct the painting were of the dumbed-down variety; in fact, the whole enterprise might be seen as a confirmation of Duchamp's scathing observation, 'stupid as a painter.' As far as I can recall, the composition began with cobbling together stray elements to form the easel, which led to the legless eagle, following the Rousselian path of phonetically stepping from 'easel' to 'eagle.'" In celebration of How I Became a Painter and The Song Cave's equally anticipated new release, Georges Braque & Others: The Selected Art Writings of Trevor Winkfield, 1990-2009, Winkfield will appear in conversation with Champion Tuesday, April 15 at McNally Jackson.
