Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits

BY GREER TOWNSHEND
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

"What I love about the medium is its innate honesty. A drawing lets slip its own history."

 In "Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits" from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 18Greer Townshend shares her passion for and practice of drawing.  Her work is frequently underpinned by the concept of fragility, whether related to the process of memory, language or the self. Greer's practice combines portraiture and elements of nature, inferring an inherent connection between the two, and denoting life cycles. Greer will be talking about her take on ‘creating’ contemporary portraiture including her current fascination with all things 'flowering'.

Flowers and Nuclear Warfare

BY ERIC LOPRESTI
@ VOL 16 ON SEP 01, 2016

“I Think about the relationship to perception…..seeing is believing.”

In "Flowers and Nuclear Warfare" from PechaKucha Night New York Vol.16Eric LoPresti makes artwork that examines the imposition of technology upon the environment and the aftermath of the Cold War. His dramatic landscapes juxtapose abstract elements with representations of the vast deserts of the American west, exploring relationships between science, identity, history and conflict. Following in the painterly tradition of the apocalyptic sublime, LoPresti’s artistic practice explores how our lives are shaped by trauma and beauty.
