PAINTING, POWER & PRESENCE: A Recontextualization for Painters, Creatives and Collectors with Jordan Wolfson
What is the deeper meaning of Painting today? When we engage in the activity of painting what exactly are we doing, how can we make it stronger, and what does it actually matter? On June 23 live via Zoom, Wolfson gave on the history and prehistory of Two-Dimensional Handmade Image Making. He will be looking at the essential experience of Presence in Painting; what is it, how it arrives, and the urgent implications for us as contemporary painters.
