Interview: Ryan Dubinsky
Luca Curci
talks with Ryan Dubinsky during THE EXTENDED BODY 2020 at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space.

I lived around Seattle, Washington for most of my life. I graduated from Curtis Senior High School in 2016 and I am currently across the country attending Southern Virginia University. I will graduate in the spring of 2020 as an art major with a computer science minor and a graphic design concentration. I started to show signs of alopecia when I was 14. Not many women can say they started losing their hair before their dad. I take it with good humor and I occasionally do public speaking on the subject of alopecia, acceptance and how to own it. I like to incorporate these ideas into my art work.There is always more to see and learn and I look forward to each new experience.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Ryan Dubinsky –
Art for me is a way to express the world around me. I love that art can be found all around us.

LC – What are you currently working on?
RD –
I am currently working on an installation piece. It will be an expression of what I see when I hear music. It is for one of my classes at university.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
RD –
Being an artist nowadays is amazing. With all these outlets to share our work and connect with our audience available I love it.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in the society? And the contemporary art?
RD –
The role of the artist in society is to motivate people to think and see the world in a new way. Helping people see how they can change perspective and open up to sometimes controversial ideas and beauty.

LC – What is your creative process like?
RD –
My creative process starts with a random thought usually inspired by something around me. I then loosely sketch out what I think I want and start to make it. Sometimes the work will follow my sketches and sometimes it will spin out onto something else entirely.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
RD –
The most challenging part of creating for me would be pacing myself. When I start a project I go go go. I want it to be done as soon as I see it in my mind because I am so excited to have the finished product.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
RD –
I find my inspiration in the people around me. The stories they have and how they interact with people around them.

I think ITSLIQUID GROUP presents a great platform for artists to interact with other people in their field.
