53 – Art, Representation, & Realism w. Patrick Higgins

Artist Patrick Higgins is with us to talk all about his art and his upcoming new show On the Green Seesaw.

We discuss the tension between realism & representation when creating a static image; we go over Patrick’s history as an artist; we also break down the ways in which you can create an engaged audience by obscuring features of your subject. All cool stuff.

Speaking of cool stuff, go search Patrick’s website for reference to what we’re talking about and what you could see at his new show!

Follow this show on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook!

10 – Art & Craft w. Nick Eaton

Our guest today is none other than hobbyist & house-painting wunderkind Nick Eaton, here to discuss the relationship between building a thing – whether that thing is a chair, a painting, or a business – and art.

We talk about art as a product and a process, that perhaps ‘craft’ is the application of skill, how Nick’s theatrical school led him to start his own painting company, and the best place to get pedestal sinks for your theatrical production! All of this and more for your waiting ears.

You can follow Nick on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/oddballeaton/) if you’d like to see the things he builds, or if you need some commercial painting expertise.

04 – Art & Beautiful, Dead Corpses w. Lisa Jones

Join my past-self and Edmonton artist Lisa Jones as we discuss how she recreates life with paint, the purpose of those little placards in galleries, and a “Nazi Jesus Teddy Bear Painting”. More to the point, we talk about how pulling beauty from all the ugliness in the world for your art can serve as a type of self-healing; and that’s really dope.

Check out her website (www.lisajones.info) or www.instagram.com/jonesiest or www.facebook.com/ArtbyLisaJones to see all of her amazing art!
