  • Description

    ANDREA BLANCH You use gold a lot in your work. Gold leaf, gold marker, gold this, gold that. What's the attraction?

    SLATER BRADLEY I use some silver too. But it's funny, nobody's really ever asked me that, and I sort of knew you were going to ask me that, and, well, growing up I did go to an Episcopalian school. A cathedral school in San Francisco, and the cathedral had a certain kind of imagery. I had that Catholic light. I use gold as a signifier of value. Gold and silver markers are permanent. Silver is more easily identifiable with the silver screen in cinema. Gold more of a sort of antiquated Visantium type of past era thing. Because it could border on being really vulgar.
