EP. 20 – KURT KAUPER – THE UNCANNY VALLEY

October 15, 2018 EPISODES


 

"In this episode of Art Grind we sit down with Kurt Kauper, one of the most important contemporary artists of this generation, to discuss his upbringing, his studio practice, and what keeps him up at night”

"Kurt Kauper is a painter whose work had, for the past fifteen years, been images of familiar cultural icons—opera divas, Cary Grant, hockey players, and Barack and Michelle Obama—seen in a variety of unfamiliar ways. His figure paintings of historical and imagined people tend to leave expectations unfulfilled, and elide simple categorization. In contradistinction to his clear and precise articulations of form, Kauper's content is characterized by indeterminacy, unintentionality, ambiguity, fluidity, destabilization, strangeness, amorality, uselessness, and the neutral. He loves Bach, Ingres, and Roland Barthes."
