From Peggy Roalf’s feature for Design Arts Daily on a conversation between Gregory Eddi Jones and Joseph Desler Costa (concerning Costa’s exhibition “Dream Date” at ClampArt):

Jones, Founding Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of In the In-Between, said, “The fabrication of your work gets me thinking about art as a product, and on how art pictures essentially act as advertisements for themselves. In one sense you’re making pictures to sell, they are shiny, alluring, and ‘sleek,’ if I might borrow a term that’s been beaten to the ground. Your pictures fictionalize their own performance of selling the products within them. At the same time, it’s still not entirely ineffectual promotion for those products. Your pictures could still very well prompt a viewer to go buy a pair of sneakers or some fries from McDonald’s.”
