Can't wait to see this new W magazine with Kirsten Dunst. She bought one of my paintings from a show I did at the Lather gallery. I remember I saw her at Swingers after that and introduced myself (after I had a few drinks-) and told her " You bought one of my paintings once" and she said "I did, and you look like one of the girls in your paintings." She was very sweet.
The new W features her on the cover and photos inside by Craig McDean. In her interview she uses her muppet voice and laugh on more than one occasion. She also admits to signing herself up for an art class. The class, which she describes as an intense, nine-to-six daily mixture of painting and drawing, is not for a role, just for her personal gratification.
"It's really about finding your style, rather than 'Hold the pencil like this,' " she adds. "I just need to learn the tools so that I can do the things that I want to do." She likes painting women, she says—mostly faces—and she explains she's inspired by portrait artists Karen Kilimnik and Elizabeth Peyton. "I wish my style was like theirs," she says, sighing.
I love their style too-
