Kate Liebman interviews Nicole Wittenberg on the occasion of Wittenberg's show The Yellow Kiss at yours mine & ours, New York through October 16, 2016.

Wittenberg comments: "I spend a lot of time looking at photographs and things online, facebook, instagram, and also out in the world taking pictures and make observational drawings. I do a lot of things from moving video on my computer and sometimes there are also models in the studio. I always start with an ink study, or many, of any particular image I’m interested in... I’m looking for anything that feels fresh, anything that engages with the feeling of being alive right now..."
