Interview with Robert Malinowski

Line Gallery: Why do you think you came to focus on drawing as opposed to another medium?

Robert Malinowski: I remember thinking about writers and their craft.  I envisioned them making notes, laying out a draft, all with a pencil and paper.  (Setting aside the thought that a computer might be the preferred tool of choice.)  I marveled at the though that it was so immediate.  Thought to paper, the idea materialized in quick and easy strokes.  I related drawing to the same immediacy. With a simple pencil and paper what could I accomplish? From there, my relationship with drawing, and its challenges, moved forward.

 

LG: Are there any artists or experiences that have shaped/influenced your practice?

RM: I was moved by Norval Morrisseau drawings that were exhibited at the Drawing Center in New York.  Not only was I moved by the work itself but also by the fact that they were works done while he was in prison during 1972/73.   Again I thought about the artist, the pencil and paper.   I enjoy the works of Parr, an Inuit artist born on Baffin Island in 1893.  He was a hunter turned artist; all I can simply say here is “so much with so little”.   This brings to mind some of the works of John Scott, which I guess you could consider drawings.  The particular works I think about were sometimes made on seemingly non-archival surfaces with Varsol and oil stick, simple bold gestures but the stories can go on forever even though the physical piece itself may not.
