Jack Hanley, Jack Hanley Gallery, New York: I like something where the intensity of the experience of the person making it comes through. Maybe somebody is turned on by the nature of the materials, a psychological issue or some kind of narrative. Maybe some people have greater intensities of experience than others. What makes art good on a grander scale is how extraordinary and profound the components of those experiences are. Some artists are maybe better than others at tapping into their own idiosyncrasies and conveying them to others.
I am fairly sure that I cannot avoid narrative of some sort in my own work - it is a timeline thing for me I think, or maybe a 'timeweb' (as I remain unsure that time is linear). In any case process and materials are the things that drive my work forward in a physical sense.
