“Sage Vaughn” posted from: The Citrus Report | Art, Culture, News, Graffiti, Music, Street Art, Clothing, Politics, Reviews
We have known about Sage Vaughn’s work for quite some time, mostly because the work is quite memorable. You’ve got the Wildlife series featuring animals with the backdrop of super-modernity, and then you have the Wildlives series, canvases of kids with the backdrop of imagination and reality. And both series’ are inspirational, and you get a sense that a story will emerge and grow from each piece.
Finally, while working at the Manifest Equality show in Los Angeles this past Winter, we met Sage, as he had just got back from a show in Geneva, Switzerland. He mentioned something about a show lining up with famed and influential Lazarides Gallery in London in 2011, and we thought we weren’t going to be able to mention it in this interview. But then Sage brought it up, so we think we can bring it up. And, Sage just got back from two surf trips already in 2010, so things are definitely looking up in the life of Sage Vaughn. —The Citrus Report
TCR: When life happens, and you all of sudden become a working artist instead of an artist who has other day jobs, how does your sleep pattern change?
I’m not sure much changed, but I did get to sleep later if I wanted. I find I get a lot done before noon, so I try to take advantage of it.
TCR: Do you ever think when you are painting, that the exact piece you are painting happens to be sought after by collectors?
No, that’s weird.
TCR: Can you give me a summary of Jackson, Oregon?
A community of very liberal hippies, surrounded by mountains, forests, and white supremacists.
TCR: Have you ever been to the Shakespeare Festival?
I snuck backstage when I was really little and watched the actors change into their costumes. Hippy bushes.
