LANDSCAPE: DRAWING AS SOURCE
The Ballinglen Arts Foundation
July 28 – August 5, 2020
Ballycastle, County Mayo, Ireland
Exploring the relationship between drawing and oil painting through the motif of landscape. How can drawing inform and enrich my painting practice? What may I discover about my way as a painter by experimenting through the practice of drawing? Working outdoors with a variety of means and ways of drawing – we will explore how to take attitudes found in drawing and bring them into our painting. Risk and play will be encouraged.
Ballycastle is magic.
Between Form & Non-Form
Jordan Wolfson is a contemporary artist investigating the relationships between perception, marking, and consciousness through the lens of observational representation. ‘What is presence and how does it become embodied in pictorial form?’ ‘What is the nature of this human depth-activity we call painting?’

The Craft, Art & Way of Painting

Our focus is on the classical and modern traditions of drawing and oil painting, within the context of our contemporary situation and currents. We are committed to the enduring power of painting as a depth human activity which affords an indispensable exploration of ways of being.

An Online Painting Collaborative
What if a painting isn’t just a painting? What if a painting actually is a catalyst, an interface, of an energetic exchange between the painter and the viewer? What if a painting, in truth, is a transmitter of the essential human experience of being?
Tapistry is an online painting collaborative that recontextualizes painting, not philosophically, but actually.

Marking the Infinite and Other Essential Tasks
Here are a some things I’ve wanted to share, some images and thoughts, inspired by a couple of recent exhibitions: “…the purpose of an artist is to reveal this presence of consciousness through the medium of the senses.
