Artist Joe Szimhart Theorizes Art as Survival in "B Inspired" Episode
by Jane Stahl
In our third "B Inspired" episode together, artist Joe Szimhart explains the multiple meanings behind his art: expression necessary for human survival. Joe's current series contains elements from cave art and native cultures.
Always a fascinating interview, Joe's knowledge of spiritual matters that comes largely from his wide reading and life experiences--first as a cult member and then as a deprogrammer--is mind-opening.
An award-winner in Studio B's "What Inspires YOU?" exhibit, in the episode, he articulates the many inspirations behind his work.
