PAINTING AND PRESENCE: a public talk by JORDAN WOLFSON

Sunday, September 23, 2018, 4:00PM, Boulder Public Library, Meadows Branch

What is presence, how does it function, and what does it have to do with painting? Jordan will present some ideas on these questions and their relation to our current art world situation.

“…the artist’s mind-in-making is not just the result of studied knowledge (getting the facts straight) or skills acquired; it is always determined by the actual process of making and the depth of awareness one brings to bear during that process…The work of art derives its ‘presence’ from this heightened awareness — from the artist’s presence of mind.”

— Mary Jane Jacob, Buddha Mind in Contemporary Art
