KATHLEEN WALL On a busy Friday as she prepared for SWAIA Winter Market, the artist took some time to be interviewed for FAAM. “Things are hectic,” exclaims Wall. “As we speak, I’m looking for a five-foot table for my booth. I’m trying to make it happen!” Over the course of a few weeks, we had several telephone conversations (and lots of laughs; Wall has a great sense of humor and is quick to share it) and corresponded through email and text messaging. RD: Hi, Kathleen. Thank you for taking time to speak with me on behalf of FAAM. We haven’t talked in a while, since you showed at IM: Edge a couple of years ago. KW: That was a while ago. I only did Edge that once. At Indian Market, I’ve mainly above Gye wha la’ pah (The Place Where I Began), part of the Place series, 2016, ceramic figure: hand-processed Jemez Pueblo clay, acrylic, earth pigments, slip, underglazes. Painting: acrylic, earth pigments, clay slip, sand on canvas, 36 × 30 × 8 in. opposite Kathleen Wall. All images courtesy of the artist. SPRING 2019 | 75
