Talk 4: The influence of non-representation and abstraction on realism continues. We will look at both photography and highly rendered representational art as responding directly to their apparent counterpart - abstraction.


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.
