"Some artists work by filtering everything. I think I’ve got a strong enough inner critic, and enough self-hatred, that I’m filtering, but I just ignore the fact that I’m supposed to only do a set number of things."—Jim Shaw on Dream Object, one of his assorted works now on view at MOCA Grand Avenue.
