speaking about each piece he chose for the show. Click
here to watch the video that
includes my piece Bandages: Pattern 1:
CVS. Dr. Dreishpoon states, "I love this
idea. Someone has taken Band-Aids and made a
minimalist construction out of them. It's creative,
it's got imagination, it's very simple, very
patternistic and has the requisite obsessive quality
that I really like. I like people who are a little on
the obsessive side, I don't know why. I think it
produces a certain kind of intense work."
