#20: Adam Caldwell “Conan The Librarian”


Adam Caldwell has us over to his studio to tell us about why he likes teaching beginner students, moving from Maine to the Bay Area, “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction,” subject genders in paintings, the relevance of painting in 2018, and handling criticism. We talk about a painting in his studio in progress which leads to talking about ways to create new compositions, nostalgia, and other things. Josh finishes the show sans-Sergio with Adam and they talk about gallery shows, taking chances with paintings, researching ideas, political activism and the social climate before wrapping it up. One of the more serious episodes of late but never too heavy. It was great for the both of us to meet him. Look up his upcoming Talon Gallery show in Portland!
