Kelly Moore Interview - July 2008



+1 ::: Why do you paint?

I tried to sell water filters but got fired and then got into the refrigerator repair business but that was pretty slow.

+2 ::: Could you tell me some more about your art?

No.

+3 ::: Do you think more about your subject matter or simply paint to express yourself?

I paint to make money for a double wide mobile home I have been eyein for about three years now. It's got a bath and a half in it.

+4 ::: Who or what are your biggest influences?

Tom Wilkerson is a big influence. Back in arkansas he taught me about being thrifty with refrigerator parts when Iwas trying to break into the business. He showed me you cant waste anything so I recycle lots of stuff off the reservation where I paint.

+5 ::: What do you do for fun (besides art)?

I like chicken enchiladas and tequila every now and then.

+6 ::: What inspires you to paint and how do you keep motivated when things get tough in the studio?

Money and pretty girls inspire me.

+7 ::: How have you handled the business side of being an artist and what tips would give to other artists?

From watching other artist, I can tell being friends with successful artists must make your art better. Getting along with the important ones helps as well. I tried to join a Yahoo outsider art group once and the queen bee there kicked me out of the group because I told her she wasnt wearing any clothes. That probably ruined my career. But at least I still got my pants on.

+8 ::: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Probably still selling my work on the tesuque reservation at the flea market here in New Mexico until I can pay off the mobile home.

+9 ::: Could you talk about your latest series of work and what you are trying to achieve with them?

I have been painting the devil alot lately because sin has been all over me once I decided I needed the money for that mobile home. I have done some awful things trying to get that downpayment together.

+10 ::: What advice would you give to an artist just starting out?

Dont do it unless your house has caught fire.
