After a VERY long hiatus, we're back with another episode!
This one, episode # 44, features a conversation with Harvey Tulcensky recorded when Chris visited Harvey's studio in Manhattan last Spring.
Harvey's artwork for the past 10 years plus has consisted of a growing body of small moleskin sketchbooks, numbering well into the hundreds, that he fills up with ballpoint pen drawings as if it were a metabolic process. Within this corpus of sketchbooks are countless opportunities for creating discrete statements by corralling a selection of books into a composition . Harvey hangs stacked arrangements of sketchbooks, streching their accordion pages out horizontally to create large, expressive wall reliefs.
In our talk, Harvey tells of growing up in Detroit, making his way to NYC, via Vermont, living large as a ranch hand in Idaho, and how he arrived at the work he does today.
