Samuel Peck holds a BFA in Printmaking and Drawing from the University of Rhode Island, and an MFA in Printmaking and Drawing from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Sam is currently a Phd Candidate in Art Education at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.
I have known Sam now for ten or twelve years, and in this episode, I talk with him about his art about where his desire to make interesting images comes from and how process is important to him and his work. We discuss how he explores the notion of surprise in his work and how he works with finding artistic problems.
It was a pleasure to sit down with Sam and talk about his printmaking work as well as his drawings and paintings, and to get a glimpse into his ideas about art education. I hope that you enjoy the conversation.
