Micah Cash is a painter and photographer who graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2014. His work focuses on landscapes that are a combination of natural and manmade activity. He uses the two media to present different perspectives of the same location. The result is visual a conversation about the collision between these two forces and how the inhabitants integrate them into our daily lives.
This episode is an hour and twenty minutes long and our conversation covers a wide swath of issues that face every person who considers art as a career. As you listen to the interview you’ll enjoy Micah’s upbeat perspective of the challenges faced by most graduates post academia. I think you’ll also be interested in his thoughts on ways to make a living as an artist and how to extend your reputation beyond your immediate art community.
Here are a list of shows where Micah’s work can be seen throughout the summer of 2015. You can get the latest updates on his exhibitions, as well as see examples of his work on his portfolio site:
