Formerly a member of the net.art group I/O/D, he represented Wales at their first exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2003.

 Painting Landscape in the Anthropocene Tuesdays 10am-12:30 (Nov.13 - Dec. 18) $200

 This workshop will introduce participants to ideas and approaches to art making resulting from the increasing acceptance of the term ‘Anthropocene’ as a descriptor of our current geological epoch. The Anthropocene concept has become a major source of discussion and exploration in the arts, humanities and sciences. Current exhibitions at the AGO and National Gallery are bringing increasing attention to the idea- get up to speed in the conversation and explore ways that these ideas and the emotions they inevitably ignite can be brought to landscape painting- a direct and hands on expression of individual interpretations of place and time. How can we build on the tradition of landscape painting in the time of the Anthropocene? Let’s explore this question together through discussion, exploration of texts/artworks and of course- painting!
