What are the major stages of the Painting Journey, and a life lived in paint? What are the challenges of each stage? What are some of the confusions? Jordan Wolfson will talk through the stages, looking at works of great Modern and Contemporary painters, and their core concerns. Perhaps most importantly, we’ll talk about the essential experience of Presence in Painting; what is it, how does it arrive, and its urgent invitation for us today. In addition, within the context of the talk Jordan will provide a demo in abstract paint handling, in connection with his upcoming workshop, Abstraction: Landscape as Source.
