At the time Marshall McLuhan was at his peak so things were more language-based and technology and print, so I started proposing surfing shacks and using the surf board as a means of communication. Surfer Rick is a series of models. I made that vehicle. I think it’s a model of a Dodge van cutting two and joining them together, and rebashing it into a kind of hot rod motorbike. The first one was Surfer Rick. There’s Boater Rick, Outer Rick. Why Rick? Rickshaw! RAPID FIRE WITH KIM ADAMS The artist I admire is... Gordon Matta-Clark who cut a house in half called Splitting. I listen to... Bob Dylan both as music and in a deeper way, and J.J. Cale. I drive a... Toyota Matrix, my second one. I would like to drive a... (laughing) Ferrari but I need a truck. I like my Ford Transit but I’ve drilled a lot of holes in it and they won’t let me drive it. I drove it for a day. Inside my car trunk you’ll find a... Box of Beetle magazines and three animal cages and some wine bottles. My secret weapon is... Humour. I like going regularly to... New York three times a year. I always have my birthday there. I like to get older in New York. I can say, “I’m now 66 in New York instead of I’m 66 in Toronto.” It’s been a tradition for a long time, and it just feels better. To be an artist you need... Elephant skin or a turtle shell. My next inspiration is... Hoping for another one. I don’t really work in that term but a Jacuzzi water fountain. Think of a big boulder or monument and a Jacuzzi. www.pwc.com/ca/private Looking to grow? Take a closer look with PwC Canada’s Private Company Services group.
