When we asked him to share more about his lecture he will present in Atlanta.... in his own words:
"One of the biggest challenges artists have is to remain relevant to the times in which we paint. Holding the attention of the viewer long enough for them to become involved in the work should stimulate new ideas, and augment existing artistic beliefs. It is not always easy to balance the two in this age of acceleration.
I will use examples of my own work to help formulate ideas that will enable painters to think about different presentations that may make their work more unique. In a new world of digital imagery constantly bombarding the senses, the artist has to find ways of separating themselves from all the competing noise to remain relevant.
You might be surprised where this challenge might take you.
We will discuss some possible solutions, and look forward to a robust audience discussion."
