On the Spot: Salt Lake City artist Dana Costello
There’s quite a pile of books by my bed right now, but I have been focusing on a biography of Remedios Varo called “Unexpected Journeys.”WHAT IS HANGING ABOVE YOUR MANTEL?
I don’t have a mantel, but my living room has about 30 of my own paintings on the walls; a friend of mine says they are like protective talismans but I think it’s kind of a form of storage.
IF YOU COULD CHOOSE ANY ARTST TO PAINT OR SCULPT YOUR PORTRAIT WHO WOULD IT BE?
It’s a toss up between Pablo Picasso and Frida Kahlo. I think I would be more interested in the experience of sitting for either of them than the actual product. Too bad they’re dead, maybe we can do a seance. John Currin would be my chioce for artists who are alive.
This is our chance to check in with members of Utah’s art community to see what they’ve been reading, seeing, doing.
