We talk to Connor Clinch, a B.F.A. student at Winthrop University and graduate of The Fine Arts Center in Greenville. We discuss the relationship that we all have with art as humans, whether conscious or not, and its impact on growing small towns. We’ll also talk about the nature of some misconceptions around art and artists.
Connor was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina. He’s currently working toward a B.F.A. with a concentration in printmaking and sculpture at Winthrop University. His work has been featured in many shows, and curated events in upstate SC. His work varies from manipulated ready-mades, to humorous thought prints, to sound art, to poster design, to the occasional performance piece. Most of his project ideas are generated in response to the history of art, and established theories and practices.
