Ep. 16 – Stephen Shaheen

August 18, 2018 EPISODES

  “Our guest on this episode is Steve Shaheen, a well-known sculptor and stone carver. As painters, we had a lot of questions about the logistics involved in this particular strain of contemporary art-making: what happens when, during a process that is based on removal rather than addition or application, one makes a mistake? How does a sculptor store his works, which typically take up more 3-dimensional space than those of a painter?” SHOW LINK Steve’s Instagram Please feel freeRead More

Ep. 15 – Vincent Desiderio

August 1, 2018 EPISODES

  “This installment of the Art Grind podcast features a painter who has been a longtime personal role model for several of the podcast’s hosts. Even as he is a creator of absolutely monolithic paintings, Vincent Desiderio, a veteran lecturer at the New York Academy of Art and elsewhere, also manages to be an incredible speaker on the subject of art; laying out an ideological landscape that encapsulates why artists (including Desiderio himself) do what they do and how theyRead More

Ep. 14 – Frank Bernarducci – Visionary Art Dealer

July 26, 2018 EPISODES

Frank has been a groundbreaking curator and art dealer in NYC since the mid-1980s.

Ep. 12 – Joseph Grazi – Animal Liberation and Revulsion

July 2, 2018 EPISODES

  “In the past, the taxidermic animals, bones, and other natural materials employed in much of Joseph Grazi’s art work have put him at odds with various animal rights activists, casting him in the role of a sort of curmudgeon of this corner of the art world. Verily, the artist would claim, his often controversial selection of materials might draw out negative reactions in some; however, it is precisely this moral panic that Joseph Grazi seems to want to begetRead More

Ep. 10 – Fay Ku – Myth and transformation

June 6, 2018 EPISODES

  “What do you get when you cross images of sexual bondage with lush, botanical illustration and mythical/fairytale references of transformation? Give up? Well, artist Fay Ku has some answers for you, but first let’s take a look at where she’s coming from. Born in Taiwan, Ku came to the States at the young age of three. Ku studied Literature and the Visual Arts at Bennington College (1996) and earned an MS Art History and an MFA Studio Art fromRead More

Ep. 09 – John Wellington – Come nearer the fire

May 15, 2018 EPISODES

  “Verging on the obsessive (a necessary trait if one is to produce a body of work) Wellington’s totemic imaginary worlds have been the subject of solo and group exhibitions from New York City to Paris, France. They have been shown at the Centre Georges Pompidou and most recently at the now defunct but memorably dynamic Lodge Gallery on the Lower East Side of Manhattan (Temple Tomb Fortress Ruin, 2017). We explore his youth, growing up in NYC in theRead More

Ep. 08 – Dina Brodsky – Tales of Ordinary Madness

May 1, 2018 EPISODES

  “Brodsky talks to us about her own particular point of view on the art scene and recounts hilarious tales of her early artist vagabonding years. The list of characters could well populate a Fellini movie. Small in stature her will to forge on and champion the art she believes in is huge and her stories of failing forward are inspirational for any artist struggling in the daily art grind.” Natural Proclivities, May 24th – July 27th, 2018, Curated byRead More

Ep. 07 – Marc Dennis – The Darc Mennis

April 15, 2018 EPISODES

    “And in this corner, we have the heavyweight fighter of paint slinging… Marc Dennis. Dennis is a champion in the realm of hyperrealistic painting, duking it out every day in the studio apply a rigorous work ethic that produces mind bending detail and realism that goes beyond representation into the superreal. His floral still life paintings are a vivid homage to the Dutch still life painters of the 17th century and speak to the abundance of our era.Read More

Ep. 06 – James Adelman – Nocturnal Perambulations

April 1, 2018 EPISODES

  “James Adelman brings us an enlightening revelation of his process, life, the universe and everything. Have a listen to Adelman as he unpacks his journey into meditation and gives us a view into his nocturnal perambulations. James is a graduate of the New York Academy of Art (2014) and also attended the Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2010. His paintings and drawings have been shown at the Lodge Gallery on the Lower East Side and Flowers Gallery in theRead More

Ep. 05 – Maria Kreyn – Enigmatic Rebel

March 15, 2018 EPISODES

  “Is an artist a product of their environment or are they simply an invention of their own complex personality traits? Nature versus Nurture, which came first, the artist or everything that artist has experienced. Probably both.  Maria Kreyn is a classically academic painter with roots in Russia and the U.S., who combines esoteric allegory with a streak of the romantic philosopher/poet is a self-educator who’s background includes studies in mathematics and philosophy at the University of Chicago (2008) andRead More
