While the finale was the episode that I enjoyed watching most, it was also by far the one that was most fun shooting.
First of all it was such a pleasure to visit Young, Kymia, and Sara in their respective homes and to get to meet their loved ones. Driving around Chicago on a sunny day in a convertible Fiat 500 with very loud music was not too bad either.
The finale is the only episode where the contestants have plenty of time to prepare their exhibitions and have no thematic constraints of any kind. They can do their work in their own studios, are not being filmed 24/7, and are not sleep deprived.
The lack of all that pressure is not necessarily an advantage. So often in life we achieve so much more with stringent deadlines than when we think we have all the time in the world on our side.
Will there be another show? How do you go about applying to be a contestant on the show? Is there an age limit?
I couldn't agree more, Kymia is an amazing artist. Please tell Bravo to get their act together and make it easier for people to buy prints and originals. There are people with money will to buy.
Love you Simone! I am glad you are blunt wih the artists. It seems to help them - and challenge them to dig deeper.
I especially like reading your assessment of the artists' work. It's another perspective - and a trusted one at that...perhaps even the keenest of the bunch :)
I'm so glad Kymia won. Her work is lovely and thoughtful. I would love to see it in person.
How to buy prints? Bravo ends the show saying to go to this website to find out how to own a print, but I sure can't find it anywhere on the website. Could you help a girl out? I'd love a print of Kymia's boat.
