Jack Whitten will discuss the formal issues of his works in the SCAD Museum of Art exhibition, "Erasures," which explores the artist's intentional elimination of art historical references present in his earlier paintings. He will also explore the psychological and political implications that surface during the act of making a painting, and how his approach is a holistic endeavor that encompasses both plasticity and sensibility as a part of his studio practice.
Presented as part of the 2013 deFINE ART program.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
Lecture presented by SCAD with generous support from the Jacob and Gwendolyn Lawrence Foundation
