Artists are often confronted with periods of stasis in the studio, experiencing the need to push their work further but not necessarily knowing how or to where. Since many artists spend a great deal of time in solitude, this challenge can be particularly pertinent. This exciting program, moderated by the Artistic Director of Painting, Drawing & Printmaking, embarks upon an in-depth conversation with artist Rubens Ghenov regarding the ways in which he spurs on his practice. We discuss the methods that he uses to keep his imagery fresh, find new sources of research and move his work into unexplored and fruitful territory. He answers the questions that we as artists are often afraid to ask each other: “Where do your ideas come from? How do you stay inspired?” — and speaks about the choices artists make to take their work to the next level.
