Artist Talk: Neil Callander
The Fine Art Department of Pennsylvania College of Art & Design welcomes Neil Callander for an online Artist Talk Thursday, March 31, at 2:15 pm.
Callander’s Artist Statement reads, in part, I pack a painting with cultural and personal references and work toward an image that is provocative yet conceptually flexible. As more is added the compositions grow denser, tighter, and more intricate over time – like the tangle of a garden in late summer. The act of viewing my paintings is an unlocking of these internal relationships. Experiencing dense paintings that slowly reveal their nature can help us contend with the pervasiveness of fast-talking, slick images. In a media-riddled world, painting is a stabilizing force.
