Erik Schmidt

My studio is my studio.

What I do in one sentence: I create paintings and videos of images by the reality around me to get aware where I am.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: Art is a proper job.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: Performance video on the moon!

Why I do what I do: I can’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): Jol Thomson, just saw a work at Haus der Kunst, Munich.

I am afraid of writing in English.

I know an art work is finished when the photography dissolves behind pasty oil paint.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: don´t care.
