Interview with Larry Carlson

What inspires your work?


To stay inspired, I look at a lot of different kinds of art in museums, galleries, and online. Many of the ideas for my art come to me in dreams and visions. I spend a lot of time out in nature, hiking, camping and taking photos, being a part of the mother nature system has a deep influence on my work.

How do you create your collage work?

With glue and scissors.I hunt for old books and magazines for material to use and I print out images from the computer. I cut and splice these samples into new formations that reconstruct culturally constructed meaning of the original samples, opening up these received images to a multiplicity of interpretations. Collage artists take a tiny little bit of something from a piece and put it together with a lot of other pieces and make a distinct whole. Sometimes I like to collaborate on collage books with other fellow collagists, like Brian Belott.
1birdmusic_larrycarlson How do you make the soundtracks?

I make my soundtracks by mixing and processing sound samples on the computer. I use several different sound programs to put the tracks together. I collage samples from everywhere and anywhere, the TV, the web, radio, phone messages, turntables and musical instruments. I also play around with the KORG MS2000, a really cool Pink Floydish sounding synthesizer .
larrycarlson-digital-artDo you have a blog?

Yes. Kind of…its a very experimental blog, It’s not really a log of my real life , but a log of my surreal life. It’s a stream of digital, mixed media, and collage artwork. I give you a peek at what I’m working on at the moment, as well as open up my archives and show some old work. Here’s a link to it – SKYHASEYESRead the Entire Larry Carlson Interview
