Interview with Brian Stuparyk

Brian Stuparyk was interviewed via Skype on November 16, 2007 by Oliver Wise and Eleanor Hanson Wise of The Present Group..


Part 1 where Brian talks about the themes of authenticity and value in his art, a bit about his educational history (or lack there of) in art, and the Call to Entry that kick-started the Failure series: A show put on by Chester Costello entitled, “Something to do with Failure.” We also discuss how the process plays into the creation of his works and how these works interact with a viewer.




Part 2 where we talk about his failure series, failing at failure, and the future: Trying, succeeding, and still failing. We talk about his experience at Cranbrook (“What does it mean to be an artist today? Failure and debt.”), his letter to Eric Fischl, more about “Conversation” as well as what’s brown and sticky.
