Here’s a short interview with the granddaughter of Sigmund Freud talking about the goals of her art:
What’s the good life, according to Ms. McAdam Freud? Be your own boss. Have friends, love your life. Finally, lead an analyzed life, and she does this through art.
Plus, apparently it was embarrassing to grow up as a Freud, and it still doesn’t help her much, even though her name is what made me find her on youtube and post this video and consequently promote her work, which includes things like this very nice pencil drawing of a fishy-eared Egyptian guy, which, I guess, contributes to an examined life by, well… pointing out the fishy eared, ancient Egyptian in all of us?
