Rios: What was the first piece of art you ever made?
Lydia: Wow, I don’t know if I remember… probably when I was a kid scribbling with a pen or pencil. I imagine a regurgitation of abstract expressionism, or maybe I just actually physically regurgitated on the paper itself – very postmodern…or Freudian? Whatever, life is art anyway (and art is life and back and forth forever and ever) 🙂
