Two artists together for the first time!

Today on the show we have a live recording from last Friday's opening at MichaelKate Interiors, where I interviewed R. Eddie Hall and Stuart Carey, two very different artists from Carpinteria who curator Jan Ziegler has put together in one show called "Ancient Modern." This is a much shorter podcast than usual because, to paraphrase my theatre director friend Maury, "nobody leaves an art talk saying damn, I wish that was longer." But in this thirty minutes we take in a lot of stuff and learn some things about both these guys, neither of which I've interviewed before.

Stuart Carey's double sided tapestry, left. Eddie Hall's work, right.

Eddie Hall is a sculptor first, but for this show he's made three dimensional canvases out of papier mache and other materials, but really they look like alien life forms coming off the wall. And Stuart Carey's work is jaggedy and sometimes figurative and reminds me a bit of Louis Wain, the cat painter, if you know who I'm talking about, just without the cats. Both guys are kind of spiritual, and both guys talk about something beyond themselves, and a good time was had by all. On the web page for this podcast you'll see work by both of them.
