This is 5 Questions. Each week, we send five questions to an artist featured in Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Art Golacki.
What are you trying to communicate with your work?
Since every one of us evolved from the very subjective perception of ever-changing phenomena called collectively a reality, I am in constant process of sharing my personal experience of that journey.
What is an artist’s responsibility?
In my opinion, to translate what is indescribable.

Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not)?
Self discovery, but I am afraid I do not have any tangible evidence to support it.
Tell us about a work you want to make but never will:
A feature scientific film investigating every single cell of my body in search of an Ego.
Who are three artists we should know but probably don’t?
