Making replicas of things feels akin to play, which is perhaps why many artists undertake it. When I was a kid I took a ceramics class and for my “freestyle” project I made a taco. I recall being proud of it and using burlap to make the texture of the tortilla. I forgot about it until I was asked to be in the Early Show at Gavin Brown’s and my mom sent me a box of my childhood art. I was in the process of making a 6-foot pile of handmade trash and one of the pieces I had just made was a fabric taco. I had recognized the redundancy of themes in my work prior to that but it was funny to have it spelled out so clearly: my adult work barely evolved from this object, echoing the redundant influences and themes of both youth and maturity.
