Julia Schwartz interviews artist Mark Dutcher whose show Transfer was recently on view at Coagula Curatorial, Los Angeles.

Dutcher comments: "I love the idea of trying build a utopian structure with the idea that the monument being built won’t last forever. I think that is glorious and absurd and very human... A monument. a ruin. a statue in a park of some forgotten hero. a painter/artist in the studio... I am always caught between seeing life as being absurd and me aching to find/create meaning... I love the idea that I am on this journey and yet I keep coming back to familiar terrain but it is always a new experience, a deeper understanding of something."
