Brooklyn Rail interview with Rosemarie Castoro

Alex Bacon of Brooklyn Rail interviews Rosemarie Castoro shortly before her untimely passing about her life and work. The interview is published in the October issue of Brooklyn Rail.

I didn’t want to design anything, I didn’t want to get my head into whatever insurance thing they wanted to do. I said, “No, that’s not for me. I just do the paste ups.” So, with that, I learned more, I was more proficient in triangles and T-squares and I’ve used them in my work. I think that whatever you do to make money, or do besides your profession, can work itself into your profession. So nothing’s wasted. I did that and after Pratt, I wanted to paint, so I was dancing.”
