GROUP CRIT – Fall 2023
Meeting LIVE Online for 8 sessions, every other Tuesday.
September 5, 19, October 3, 17, November 7, 21, December 5, 19.
Jordan will be facilitating a group critique for painters who are interested in exploring together deeper aspects of painting, what it means for each of us to paint, and how to strengthen our work, both formally and internally.
What makes a painting strong and imbues it with presence?
How does one clarify one’s own direction and path as a painter?
How can we share our work together and create a vital sense of community?
For many of us, we paint because we need to. There is something in the act of painting that deeply enlivens, brings us close to truth of our lives – that in-the-moment sense of being present, engaged, alive. There is the possibility of this deepening of engagement becoming our ongoing way of working, and bringing to our studio practice a fullness of being that empowers our work, formally and energetically. How does this happen? This question will be an ongoing part of our conversation during our sessions.
“Painting is impact.” — Avigdor Arikha
In a personal, honest, friendly and supportive atmosphere, we will be gathering online for five sessions, every other week.
The group will be limited to 10 participants. Participants are expected to be engaged in their studio practice in an ongoing way, and are intermediate, advanced or professional.
