James Kalm ventures into the depths of a new art district in Brooklyn, the Gowanus, to bring viewers along for a studio visit with Mike Cockrill. With a exhibition record going back nearly thirty years in New York, Cockrill has been involved in many of the significant happenings and scenes that flourished here since the early eighties. Although well known within the artists community, his precedent setting figurative work is now being recognized as a pioneering effort in what has recently become the New Figuration. In an extended interview Cockrill discusses Kitsch, the East Village and his current sculptural work.

    I love his use of color and the very 50′s feel of Rockwell with modern sensibilities.
    Very interesting, thanks!

    I’m curious as to why an intellectual is somehow free to explore the idea of child sexuality and discovery and inject it into the mainstream as though it’s not reflective of a disconcerting personality trait on the artist’s part…

    aww .. cool video.

  4. BlissStudio says:

    Thanks james. I started to think real painters where extinct.

  5. yellowfringe says:

    I must love kitsch because I think these are great. I was in NY last fall and wandered into a gallery in which he had some works. Looked great in person as well.

    Very good news article…

    That intro scene gives the viewer the feeling of riding on your handlebars. Great paintings….great video. Thanks!

    Looks like Mike Cockrill came too early before Yuskavage and Currin …The market moves in mysterious ways…Thanks James for this interesting interview.

    I’ve pledged confidentiality to artists who don’t even want to include interviews I’ve conducted.

    James,
    Of all the artists you have spoken to, which have been
    a. the least reluctant to speak about their art?
    (Chris Martin gets my vote)
    b. the most reluctant to speak about their art?

    Why isn’t this artist’s work in major American museums? Eric Fischl explored some ‘edgy’ subject matter too – with one difference. Fischl’s facility for painting wasn’t half of what Cockrill’s is.

    Reminds me of all the illustrators from the 50s, fun to see “shocking” narratives with such clean-scrubbed folks. Upscale John Waters. Sometimes it’s better not to know what the artist is thinking if the work easily stands on it’s own. Sometimes.

  13. stocksam says:

    i didn’t know that painter.
    thanks james for your introduction.
    i liked that he fokussed on the ‘love’ in doing ‘kitsch’.
    ktisch needs a high level of handikraft.

    Thanks Mr Kalm.

  15. trueshit12 says:

    nice edith piaf song..

  16. KANGOUROs says:

    thanks james for all these videos!!

  17. jameskalm says:

    I noticed the shoes too, they were clown shoes. He did a series about eight or ten years ago called “Baby Doll Clown Killers” little girls shooting clowns, weird.

  18. jameskalm says:

    The sculptures are fabricated with “Sculppy” a self hardening clay..

  19. RonSchira says:

    A lot of love in the painting, I like that.

  20. debcoart says:

    Like his work! Thanks for the video, JK!

  21. klatkins21 says:

    Nice to see some figurative work for a change.
    What does he use to make his little dog sculptures?

  22. cinecyclist says:

    is it me or is there a bit of cezanne brush work going on in some of his stuff. also, liked the small van gogh – like shoes painting hanging on the wall in the background.

  23. wizzlewolf says:

    You better believe it! Thank heaven for little girls! Be careful James. Lots of traffic! I want that studio! I hate the dog golfers, but who am I? Still, yucko! I think the paintings are so interesting! Now that is strong stuff! Very cool.

  24. 2s2s2ss says:

    thanks james…its so refreshing not to have biases and go with what you love in art…if your really honest to how you feel its not kitsch..great work
