Daniel Johnston: “I live My Broken Dreams” with Curator Robin K Williams
Noah talks to curator Robin K Williams about the exhibition Daniel Johnston: I Live My Broken Dreams, organized by The Contemporary Austin, Daniel Johnston: I Live My Broken Dreams is the first-ever museum survey of works by the visionary musician and visual artist Daniel Johnston (1961 – 2019). Best known for his music, Johnston was also an accomplished artist who exhibited his comic-inspired drawings during his lifetime. Yet, apart from his iconic “Hi, How Are You?” mural, painted in Austin in 1993, his abundant visual art remains little-known to most audiences. This exhibition will provide a rich presentation of Johnston’s work across disciplines, enabling visitors to explore the intricate connections between his prolific corpus of music and visual art. In addition to a selection of Johnston’s drawings and paintings, the presentation will include the artist’s home-recorded music and movies, as well as documentary footage of him rehearsing and performing. This exhibition is conceived by Heather Pesanti and Robin K. Williams and organized by Robin K. Williams in close collaboration with The Daniel Johnston Trust. The Daniel Johnston Trust is Dick Johnston, Executor; Lee Foster, Curatorial Advisor; and Donny Veloz, Administrative Manager.

Jen Stark
Noah talks to visual artist Jen Stark. Jen Stark’s art is driven by her interest in conceptualizing visual systems to simulate plant growth, evolution, infinity, fractals, mimetic topographies, and sacred geometries. Using available materials—paper, wood, metal, paint—Stark strives to make work that balances on a razor’s edge of optical seduction and perceptual engagement. The resulting works often resemble organic, molecular, cloud-like structures, and are imbued with kinetic, undulating effects that serve to dislocate the viewer from staid reality into an immersive ecosphere of echoing patterns and the implausible designs found in nature. Even her vivid colors are in direct conversation with the natural world; the attractant/repellent properties of flowers encouraging pollination or insects warning birds of their poisonous traits, and the luminous mystery of phosphorescent sea creatures are among Stark’s concerns.

Lee Krasner (1978)

Lenore "Lee" Krasner (born Lena Krassner on October 27, 1908 – June 19, 1984) was an American abstract expressionist painter, with a strong speciality in collage, who was married to Jackson Pollock. Although there was much cross-pollination between their two styles, the relationship somewhat overshadowed her contribution for some time. Krasner’s training, influenced by George Bridgman and Hans Hofmann, was the more formalized, especially in the depiction of human anatomy, and this enriched Pollock’s more intuitive and unstructured output.

Kim Dorland
Noah talks to Kim Dorland whose painting practice reflects a fascination with the enigmatic Canadian landscape as it comes into contact with contemporary urban experience. The psychological atmosphere represented by Dorland is confrontational and hallucinatory, disrupting conventional ideas that the natural world is a place of solace and contemplation. Using a dense matrix of intense colours, delirious textures, and passionate painterly touch, Dorland brings a paradoxical sense of displacement in which the artist’s relationship with nature is simultaneously one of awe and fear. In parallel with this, fragments of contemporary urban life materialize themselves in the form of ghostly figures and graffiti remnants. It is through these dueling representations of the landscape that Kim Dorland has created a body of work endowed with an emotional charge whose potential far exceeds the formal confines of the canvas.

Delta 2
Noah talks with legendary graffiti artist DELTA 2 was raised in the Spanish Harlem section of Manhattan and became involved in subway painting in the late 1970s. His early observations of IRT Kings such as LEE and BLADE drove him to create his own style. DELTA's subway painting career peaked from the early to mid 1980s. He became well known for his rapid takeovers of the 6 and 4 lines. During this time period DELTA also founded the crew Kings Arrive. During his career he teamed up with writers such as MACK, SWAN, JOEY TDS, SHARP, PART ONE and others. DELTA 2 also experienced success in the international art scene. Beginning in 1984 he painted in more conventional contexts. He participated in a Guillaume Gallozo graffiti art presentation for Valentino's 25th Anniversary in Rome, Italy and displayed and sold paintings throughout Europe. DELTA's current work features traditional aerosol paintings--such as his work at the 2005 NYC Graffiti Hall of Fame--and meticulously detailed line art illustrations and letter explorations. He also continues working on fine art and comercial comissions. More on DELTA 2 in the Future.
