Arrested Motion interview Morgan Spurlock regarding ‘New Blood’

Morgan Spurlock alongside works from Gaia and WK Interact

AM: Are there any other artists that you think would make good filmmakers that you could possibly make one of your protégés?
MS: I would love for Todd Schorr to be given a bank of money to make an animated film. How brilliant and fucked up would that movie be?

Arrested Motion interview Jacub Gagnon

Jacub Gagnon 'Cakes and Ladders' - acrylic on canvas

Arrested Motion just posted their in-depth interview with emerging Canadian artist Jacub Gagnon as he prepares to make the trip down to LA for his big ‘Elements and Oddities‘ show which opens this Saturday alongside new works from Japan’s Yosuke Ueno.

“I feel as though there is more to life than we know and this will always be so. I think there are connections and streams of consciousness tying us together in unimaginable ways. In my paintings I try to make these ‘unlikely’ connections, the unimaginable, imaginable, bringing what might seem like unconnected or unlikely paths of life together under a new light.” – Jacub Gagnon
