Stephen B. MacInnis. PAIR exhibition at PROTO Gallery.
I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Phillip J. Mellen for his podcast blog ahtcast. Phillip and I have been Facebook friends for awhile now, and this is the first time we have every spoken over the phone. I enjoyed the process and I really enjoyed talking with Phillip. ahtcast has many other artist interviews and I hope you take time and give them a listen. They are very informative.
Welcome. My name is Phillip J. Mellen and I hail from the state of Massachusetts, USA. Hence the ‘Bostonian accent’ stand-in: “aht” for “art”. It’s ahtcast.
Ahtcast is a word, a partially made up word. It is a podcast. It is a podcast that aims to discover the passions, through the investigation of process, of the artist and their work, studio practice and inspirations etc.
The backbone of each interview is the set of questions that are asked in each interview. They are a vehicle for dialogue. They are designed to gain insights and are a catalyst for open conversation. These questions often yield some very personal stories behind why artists do what they do and how they do it.
I hope you enjoy the content shared in these interviews. Thank you for listening and stay tuned for some insights into the thoughts and processes of artists working today.
