FLAVIA SOUZA No. But once I had an artist from the building come into my studio on open studio night and we talked at length about a piece she liked that I said a lot of people liked. the following year I saw her making work that looked just like it - completely different from her previous work. I couldn't believe it. I didn't have an open studio for years and I almost didn't participate in this show for the same reason. Artists can be assholes. You can have an opening to a deeper place and be completely cut off in this one. A human being can make an artwork of himself. I think that is the best kind of art.
