I believe that people tend to relate to art when they are able to make a personal reference, which helps them understand their nature. Therefore, I consider my pieces as a metaphorical mirror, which reflects the relationships between memory, identity, and the object.</p> <p>Only recently have I decided to shift my attention to the relationship of the identity and emotional expression. It came as a natural continuation, after giving so much focus on objects and memory, to finally dig into some restrictive inner parts. My latest piece was a neon sculpture commissioned by Nike that showed the importance of inner strength, persistence, and progression. I was inspired by the Olympic &amp; World Champion in Pole Vault, Katerina Stefanidi.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180618080445-anna_fafaliou.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;">2018, Neon, Commissioned by Nike</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What is an artist&rsquo;s responsibility?</strong></p> <p>An artist&rsquo;s responsibility should not be to rely on what has made them a success. The importance of making progress and the willpower for communicating your work to the public is a key element. You have to be clear on what it is you are conveying&mdash;otherwise it is just more stuff in a room. Being an artist gives you all the freedom of experimentation, failure, and success you might ask for; so, in a way being creative, innovative, and progressive are the three key words for me.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180618080425-20170106064938-IMG_1705.JPG" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>Torso</em>, 2016&ndash;17, Plaster cast</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not)?</strong></p> <p>I don&rsquo;t think it&rsquo;s the greatest thing I ever done but it means a lot to me on my many levels.

My artistic practice interrogates the psychological interior of a biological and transitory body. I am interested in the passage of time, the moment in which the form is about to precipitate itself in the irreparable process of dissolution, the moment in which the form no longer responds to its form.</p> <p>My most recent searches are motivated by the fascination in the destructive potentiality of nature and time. In how the remains of the past become symbols of transience, permanence and fall, sunsets, the interior of the human being and loneliness. Symbols by antonomasia of the transient, the ruins are the metaphors that interest me in this stage. The ruins in relation to the individual and personal memory of the passage of time.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180604150310-ruins_charm.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>Ruins&rsquo; Charm</em>, 2017, Glazed ceramic</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What is an artist&rsquo;s responsibility?</strong></p> <p>An artist&rsquo;s responsibility is to be honest about his work. This means that it should be deeply rooted into his/her interests and concerns and truly expressing&nbsp;those interests to broaden the public&rsquo;s perception of life in all its ways.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not)?</strong></p> <p>From an art perspective, the greatest thing is the next work I am planning to do!</p> <p>The greatest thing I ever made is my two children. It sounds a foolish thing to say, but molding another human being emotionally and spiritually is the greatest work of art one can do. It is something so dynamic, so dialectic, that I find it amazing. It is a work of so many variables&mdash;one works on them and on oneself at the same time.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180604150235-20171011194348-_DSC2137_web.jpg" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:12px;"><em>Silence before downfall</em>, 2017, Ceramics</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Tell us about a work you want to make but never will:</strong></p> <p>It would probably be a huge installation involving gigantic ceramic sculptures and architecture.

This week we seek answers from <a href="https://www.artslant.com/global/artists/show/477693-graham-macaulay" target="_blank">Graham Macaulay</a>.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What are you trying to communicate with your work?</strong></p> <p>I&rsquo;m looking for the small spaces between, or around the edges of things. Overlapping that is an interest in how things can be pressed to perform on our behalf, to act as placeholders or mediators for lived experience. My work tries to negotiate with frames, flatness, and fixity, and the roles these terms play in contriving static subjects and communities. There are sentimental and escapist tendencies at play, filtering a manner of abstraction through a clumsy poetics, but the presence of the body is always called back through the insistence of materials.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180518202115-20170317235755-010GMTheWindow_TheGround.JPG" /><br /> &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What is an artist&rsquo;s responsibility?</strong></p> <p>Magic! Discomfort as well. Attentiveness to the possibilities of vulnerability (and embarrassment) might provide a sort of ethical scaffold to work through.</p> <p>These are more so instructions for myself: Leave space open for uncertainty. Try to read Karen Barad. Acknowledge and support the presence of bodies other than my own.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180518202054-20170312182646-01_Macaulay.jpg" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not)?</strong></p> <p>Apparently I was a prolific author when I was a kid. Usually I would draw the pictures and then dictate the story to my parents, who would write it out for me and professionally bind it with wallpaper samples. In this case I wrote it myself (very proud), but my mom did the title on the cover, because she had nicer handwriting (thanks, mom).</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180518202028-image1.jpeg" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>The Glowing Bird</em> is about a group of boys who go rafting down a river and get washed away by a &ldquo;terrible storm&rdquo; in the night. They end up in a cave where they meet a bird that &ldquo;glowed red yellow and blue&rdquo; who provides a new boat and guides them home through the dark. &ldquo;He glowed they were savd. They went back home and lived happily ever after.&rdquo;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.artslant.com/userimages/32120/1dkh/20180521151629-image1__1_.jpeg" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Tell us about a work you want to make but never will:</strong></p> <p>An actual portal.
