We're a podcast presented by Individual Artists of Oklahoma. Each episode, hosts Bob and Joe have a conversation with an artist living and working in Oklahoma. We'll get to know the artist, find out more about them personally, and learn about how they work and what makes them tick.
Bob and Joe discuss the organic process of Elizabeth Brown's art. Elizabeth is an artist, sculptor, and an associate professor of Art at UCO. She received her MFA in Fibers from Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ and her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI. Exhibiting both nationally and abroad in invitational and solo exhibitions her current work focuses on organic sculpture using synthetic materials. These forms play with creating objects that reference natural forms but remain elusive in their definition.
Bob and Joe discuss the life and art of Paul Medina. Paul is a visual mixed media artist that works and lives in Oklahoma. Throughout his long career in the creative arts, he has written many short stories, essays and poetry but never as his main field of endeavor. His new book, Unbroken Circles, is available now.
