On the occasion of his exhibition at the Galveston Artist Residency, William Sarradet talks with artist J.R. Roykovich about the paranormal and how supernatural concepts can be activated in art.

“I’m interested in the mechanics of how you reach an unknown entity, or an unknown destination, which I think is not at all dissimilar to artmaking.”

Thank you Ann! If you are open, I am collecting ghost stories from Galveston to create an archive of local folklore, I will link below – I would love to hear yours! Otherwise the show is up until November 5th, we hope to see you!
