ON ART: Conversations with the Artists
from the exhibition, APPEARANCES
Air Date: March 17 | 6 PM
On Art: Conversations with the Artists is back with a virtual twist! Curious about what inspires the artistic process? Want to learn more about materials chosen for a piece of work? What about the art or the artist provokes your interest or curiosity? Participating artists from Appearances will discuss their adaptations of Lauren E. Peters’ 2016 piece self-portrait (orange).
Studio artist Lauren E. Peters collaborated with a selected group of artists to reimagine her signature body of self-portrait work. Peters describes painting self-portraits as an isolating experience with an imagined audience. “I’ve always encouraged the viewer to attempt to see themselves and each other differently, but in the moment it’s hard to look past all the images of a single person using a singular style of painting.”
