Loren Munk AKA James Kalm Talking about how history has helped him.

August 2013 I sat down with the Painter/Historian Loren Munk AKA James Kalm (The Guy on the Bike) in his Brooklyn Studio to talk about his work as a painter along with his work as a historian. In this interview he speaks of a paper he wrote and what happened after the paper was published. It's quite the amazing story. Dig in.

For a link on the article Loren speaks of in this interview, here you go...

Thanks Loren and Thanks Kate!

Michael Brennan Talks about painting while priming a canvas in Brooklyn,...

I don't share very many clips from Michael Brennan on here. I don't know why that is, being that I have had many many wonderful conversations about painting with him. He is a wealth of information about painting and paintings history, more in tuned with the contemporary history of painting, which is the type I am more interested in. I decided to share this section from our second interview as I felt it was germane to the situation here. Plus you get to see something you don't see very often with painters. How they prime their own canvases. This seemingly banal subject is one many of us take seriously and with pride.

Thanks Michael for allowing me to film your world of painting. Looking forward to the next session.

Susan Roth Interview about her history and how she has dealt with change in her work.

If you are visiting here, you already know who Susan Roth is. So I'll just let this interview clip from our second session speak for itself.

Thanks Susan, Thanks Darryl, and Thanks to ALL of you that have helped me in any way to get to where these films are today. You are truly appreciated.
