Brian Sherwin, writing for myartspace.com
, has conducted interesting interviews with Stuckist co-founder and artist Charles Thomson
, and New York painter Terry Marks
. When asked by Sherwin if "people once again have faith in the revolutionary power of art" due to groups of artists like the Stuckists, Thomson replied:
"Revolution for its own sake is a bad thing. Revolution is only valid if there is a situation that needs to be changed, which happens to be the case at the moment. A lot of people have found Stuckism inspiring, because it shows that artists can assert themselves without any backing or establishment approval. That is a very good thing because it is empowering and affirms people's trust in themselves. Stuckism has been very clear about its agenda from the outset to effect a change."
