Strategy Games by Fradga
Strategy Games
A woman who neglects the household to play Civilization III

Civilization III is a bit like a paper shredder for time, a time shredder. You just take 14 hours and stick them down into this peculiar machine and they just disappear.

Why do I not like it when concept artists don't strive to make works that are worked through or visually beautiful in any way?

I finally have an answer to that question.

Because the world is already so full of tacky, shallow things and places and people. Our man made environment is ugly, so ugly. We see so many ugly things every day. I think paintings to me have always been a conscious or unconscious attempt to create an oasis of beauty in this ugliness. I have a hard time getting along with the idea of making art without that presumption.
I just work a lot. I have a responsible job, I do it to the best of my ability. I do not work full time and hope not to have to do that any time soon. I draw whenever I find the time and I have some stuff coming up that i hope to hear your opinions on. I am developing what i think is a new style.

My family can not understand that it is quite possible for me to live off a half time wage and guilt trip me constantly because I am not pursuing a career. Art is the only thing that has made me happy since I was a child in any consistent way. The making of art, experiencing other peoples art, hanging out with other people who make art. The tools and mediums surrounding it are the only objects I truly enjoy consuming. From age 13 to 23 my life was a void, lacking all meaning. I was a machine that did what needed to be done to get by, to survive but never to be happy or feel fulfilled. It was a decade of absolute misery and not to be underestimated, boredom. Utter, deranging boredom. I tried to fill that void with men which ended in heart break. Right now, this is the shit I want to do. I am alive, not just existing. Needless to say my parents hate it.

I paint best out of fear, anger, scorn, or sometimes, lust.

I have mixed feelings about the word "special" but your art is very honest and you do things not many people do. Thank you for that, keep it up.

My pleasure. I think you had a nice, playful take on a joke that deserves to be a classic.
