ARIZONA STUCKISTS & REMODERNISM

Stuckism began in London in 1999, founded by punk rock Renaissance man Billy Childish and painter Charles Thomson as a protest against elitist art world politics. Stuckism is a group of painters under the umbrella of Remodernism, a movement that recognizes art making as an inclusive, spiritual activity, and encourages a DIY mentality.

“Remoderism is the return of art as a revelation,” says painter Richard Bledsoe. “We are showing things about ourselves that can also be universally recognized. Our art symbolically represents flawed, searching humanity participating in birth, existence and death. It is mysterious and moving, comic and tragic, clumsy and elegant. It is a celebration of the beauty and weirdness of life.”

For too long, many contemporary Post Modern artists have hidden behind rigid masks of formalism, or empty Conceptual gestures. The desire for an art that frankly acknowledges the hunger for communication and connection has led Remodernism to spread worldwide.
