Join Gage Opdenbrouw as he explores the evocative potential of color, space, and light in works from recent and modern art history. Gage will share his own work, along with that of the many painters who have influenced and inspired him on this enduring theme, There will be time for questions and answers at the end.
“A deep thematic thread runs through all of my work, it’s a ‘vanitas’ sort of message, to take the time to be present, to notice the magic of noticing, the richness of what’s right in front of us. I think that there is something radical in making work that is intimate in scale and quiet in its content and its aims–it strikes me as a tonic, an antidote, for our times, which are increasingly dehumanized, and in which people are living lives that are increasingly disembodied, mediated by a screen, and constantly stimulated. My art is about connecting with this world, this moment, as it is, as deeply as possible.” www.gageopdenbrouw.com
