Talk 2: Photographic Paintings and Painterly Photographs - The Dialogue Continues

Last month we talked about the overlapping influences photography, drawing, and painting have exerted on each other since the dawn of Daguerrotypes. This talk will pick up, in more detail, interrelated developments in photography and painting through the mid-late Twentieth Century.

Jonathan Sutton draws on his training in literature, theatre, and film, and of course on art history, in his ongoing studio practice. His rendering of unreal scenes through realistic drawing and oil painting reflects a stretch one way into traditional techniques and media, and the other into discovery and invention. Jonathan has also taught art to adults and youth in Canada and overseas, and continues to engage art and education as inextricable.

There is no fee to attend the lecture series and all are welcome.
