How long have each of you been participating in Double Vision?
Minham: For Brian I would say at least 8 years, I’ve been doing it for four years.
Is this your first year partnering?
Minham: This is our second year partnering together.
Could you provide a description of your piece for Double Vision?
Minham: We’ve been drawing women in art history and pop culture. Knowing Dooley he’s always loved drawing women, so we kind of went with that theme, women in art history so it’s a little bit more chilled out.
Are you both enjoying the process?
Minham: Are you having fun with this?
Minham: Yeah, Dooley is a really fast worker, so he only wants to work for a few minutes at a time. It’s interesting because that’s how we’re different because he’s a really fast worker and I’m more like “oh, let’s take our time,” so it’s an interesting dynamic.
Why do you think DV is important?
Minham: It’s such a great event to bring the Cincinnati art community as a whole together to celebrate the folks at V+V and outsider art and making it more normalized in the contemporary art world. It’s always such a fun event to see everyone at V+V there, everyone is always so excited to show the world their work or the community their work, so it’s really nice to see everyone pumped… Nothing compares to DV pumped, that’s next level… It’s a great chance for everyone to get recognition. We have artists here that are a really big part of the Cincinnati art community in general, but folks who don’t get as much recognition or opportunities have a chance to show the Cincinnati art community what they do, which is amazing.
What’s your favorite part of Double Vision?
Minham: Nothing beats the live auction, just the energy and the excitement from everyone is just so great. What about you Dooley, do you like the live auction?
