Peter Gregorio | Artist Interviews

    VECTOR INTERVIEW - 05 - Jerry Kearns

    VECTOR INTERVIEW - 05 - Jerry Kearns

    Jerry Kearns is an American artist, Cultural Activist, and Educator, based in New York City. 


    His current solo show - "BLAM!!!" is featured at Frosch & Co Gallery in New York City until June 6th, 2021 and showcases a series of paintings made from 2016-2020. True to his philosophical view of art as a part of the healing process, Jerry was inspired by both personal and world tragedies. 


    Over the last 40 years he has participated is countless exhibitions and cultural projects across the Americas, Europe, and Asia. His work has been featured in The New York Times, Art and Auction, Artforum. His paintings are in collections at the Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum the Whitney Museum the Art Institute of Chicago, and the National Galerie in Berlin.


    His work is described as “psychological pop” paintings that represent a multidimensional quantum universe. Juxtaposing varied modes of representation, presenting a visual mash-up that highlights how certain iconography expresses American belief structures. Compositions rife with conflict, questioning, contradictions and intrigue, depicting iconic figures sourced from Western popular culture engaged in perpetual power struggles. His characters fluctuate between protagonist and antagonist in a narrative that reflects our own constructions of reality – a matrix of thought where time and space are condensed and presented in a single, tense moment.


    This discussion was recorded in New York City on May 2 2021 - The first half was at the Frosch & Co Gallery where he is currently having an exhibition. I want to give a thank to the Gallery director Eva Frosch for letting use the space.


    * There is a about 7 minutes in the middle of the recorded where the sound went out on one of the mics - although the sound quality drops I thought it was important to present the entire dialog. 


    The second half was recorded in his studio in Bed sty Brooklyn 


    This episode is dedicated to the memory of his life partner the singer and songwriter Nora York.

    VECTOR INTERVIEW - 04 - Alina Grasmann

    VECTOR INTERVIEW - 04 - Alina Grasmann

    Alina Grasmann is a realist painter based in Munich -


    She creates large-scale, site-specific compositions that blur the line between fact and fiction. Her works are inspired by a specific film or piece of literature as a starting point - which then takes her on a journey of exploration - where she researches places and then visits them in real life, recording her experiences and the atmosphere through photographs. Drawn to the narratives of each place, she compares the reality and sensation of the place with the way she imagined it would be, then makes interventions by changing or adding objects, or erasing parts. Rather than illustrating existing myths about a place, she aims to create space for association so new stories emerge.

    VECTOR INTERVIEW - 03 - Federico Delfrati

    VECTOR INTERVIEW - 03 - Federico Delfrati

    Federico Delfrati is an Italian Artist and Musician based in Munich, Germany


    Quoting his statement "Every aspect of reality interpreted by humankind’s curiosity and its search for meaning creates opposites and paradoxes, ethical dilemmas, vulnerability and megalomania."


    Through different medium that encompass video, performance, music and multimedia installation, Delfrati's artistic production addresses the above mentioned thematics with an empirically oriented research process whose outcome often ends up in thought experiments with a DIY approach.


    In this framework, his practice aims to discern the ambivalent image of a humanity in the face of nature that is vulnerable and manipulative, humble and megalomaniac, curious and naive.
     
    His most recent project "Beresheet", consists of a music album that tells the story of the sixth mass extinction on Earth (the one caused by human action), to an audience amiably relaxed upon a bean bag shaped as a Tardigrade: one of Earth's most ancient and resilient creatures (at least one that survived all five previous planetary dying-outs). The narration brings the listener through five chapters that mirror different emotional stages when dealing with a catastrophe: from despair to rage, resignation, ambition and acceptance.

    VECTOR INTERVIEW - 02 - Miya Ando

    VECTOR INTERVIEW - 02 - Miya Ando

    VECTOR INTERVIEW - 02 - Miya Ando Lives and Works in New York City, USA


    Miya Ando is a Japanese and American artist whose painting and sculpture articulate themes of perception and examine one’s relationship to time. Ando is a descendant of Bizen sword makers and spent her childhood between a Buddhist temple in Japan as well as in rural Northern California. Her work pays homage to ancient techniques and ideas, fusing them with contemporary materials and forms. She often references historic literary texts and examines the idea that the fundamental nature of reality is that all constituent forms that make up the universe are temporary; a concept found in Buddhism as well as quantum physics.

    VECTOR INTERVIEW - 01 - Eline Mugaas

    VECTOR INTERVIEW - 01 - Eline Mugaas Lives and Works in Oslo, Norway


    Eline Mugaas graduated from The Cooper Union  in New York in 1993. Eline’s work mostly focuses on collages and photography, aimed to provoke emotion using visuals of the architecture of our surroundings. From this, we are left to make both personal and worldly connections, such as the way architecture regulates our world. In addition to photography, Mugaas has also created films that explore similar themes. After spending the start of her career living and creating in the U.S., Mugaas eventually moved back to Oslo,  where she exhibited her breakthrough work, Let Me Be Your One Way Street, at Fotogalleriet. Since then, she has been living and working in her home of Oslo, Norway. Mugaas has shown her work at Kunsthall Stavagnger, The Museum of Modern Art, and Kunstnernes Hus Oslo.  Some of her most recent accomplishments include being awarded the prestigious  2019 Lorck Schive Art Prize from the Trondheim Kunstmuseum in Trondheim, Norway. In addition, you can see her most recent work at the Necessity of Dependent Clauses, at the Galleri Riis, in Oslo.

The Art Juice

Long awaited, Vector Interviews! Through his curatorial work Artist Peter Gregorio had a chance to meet a large number or fellow artists around the world.

Finally he gets to bring us along, while opening the doors of many private art studios and we get to peak in.

His genuine interest in stories that go behind each artist’s work allow us to get the intimate details that go into one’s creative process and feel their art as if we are standing in front it.

And without any intention to make these interviews into a peep show, however his talent to pull out the very juice by asking the right questions makes the artist talk intricate and by the end bare naked..!
