The week ends with a studio go to from Gideon Jacobs (a Moist Paint recurring forged member). We speak about his new novel and my commissions for the Whitney and KW. Our dialog turns, because it typically does, to the topics of faith, mysterianism, and vocabulary for outlining what good and dangerous artwork is. Behind him are a few of my books—I can see Winsor McCay, William Blake, The Manga, Opus, Eugenie Brinkema’s new e-book, and a Sonic the Hedgehog stuffed animal that Jillian Mayer gave me for my birthday. Gideon stated one thing throughout this go to like: “Cynicism is the misplaced relationship between hope and disappointment.” This feels true. Some kind of dialectical digestive swing there. A lesson too. (I adopted up with Gideon and he stated: “Good cynicism, if there’s such a factor, is often born from individuals who care greater than they let on, claiming one thing is irredeemably shitty however secretly hoping it’s not.”)
