Are you excited for the event today?
TH: Pretty sweet, wouldn’t you say?
What are your favorite pieces?
TH: Probably the newest, which is the very first big wave in the front.
Why black and white?
TH: It goes back to how I start every work, which is in black and white … the relationship I had with Mr. Schulz was in Black and White, that’s how he discussed pictorial problems all the time … and they are rare because I don’t do them a lot, so these are just a few pieces that happened.
We liked “Super Fly.”
TH: It’s a flying toy piano … that piece probably took about a year. The inspiration was about flying above stuff that bothers, so I took the toy piano bent it’s legs back and made him fly.
