Artist Interview: William Cordova
Evan Garza interviewed William Cordova for New American Paintings. I posted some of Cordova's works on paper from his recent show at Sikkema Jenkins, so I thought this interview would be a nice follow up.
Cordova’s work is exceptionally transformative and his approach to painting, like that of his installation work, is grounded in multifarious personal narratives, ritual histories, and subjective perception. Whether creating towering monuments of found speakers or humorous and reductive paintings on used cardboard, Cordova’s incredibly humble approach makes for work that is overwhelmingly thoughtful and executed in a majestic manner in keeping with the medium itself. - Evan J.
