Chuck earned a BA from the Brooks Institute of Photography in 1992, and an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 2008. He is the founder of the Homestead AK artist residency in Alaska, which several previous guests on the podcast have participated in. He also makes his own work which tends to deal with issues of personal and cultural identity. In some projects he deals with prominent American ideals such as westward expansion, and other projects result in much more subtle looks at what it means to be a part of this culture at this time.
Listen as Chuck talks about his work with his residency program, and also explains the ideas at play in the work he produces.
And sadly, I must inform the audience that this will be the last Studio Sessions podcast I will be posting. I moved away from the Boston area last year and have continued publishing stockpiled interviews since then, and the stockpile has finally run out. A big thanks to all the artists who participated, it was great getting to meet all of you and learn about your work, and also a big thanks to the listeners, I hope you enjoyed the series. And of course, thanks to Big Red & Shiny for providing a home for the podcast.
