Abstract Painting - ‘Anyone could do that’?
Open Circle or the ODD group
Tue 18 Nov 08 at The Blue Mugge pub
After individual comment, in turn, on each theme, general discussion and debate will follow
What is Abstract Painting and is it difficult to understand or empathise with? Can anyone do it?
What came before pictures? Why did/do people paint pictures?
What circumstances or conditions have changed the way people paint pictures?
Is there any difference between figurative and representative painting?
‘It’s not the apples I like - it’s the anxiety’ - Picasso on Cézanne
‘Art does not reproduce the visible - rather it makes visible’ - Klee
* There will be several paintings (from books) to compare and contrast.
