This demonstration is offered in conjunction with their exhibition VISIONS/REVISIONS ...stepping into the same river twice, on view at CCMoA through August 1, 2021.
Kate Nelson’s illustrated lecture will examine "Vision and Revision" as it pertains to artists including but not limited to Cezanne, Reuben Tam and Arthur Dove. Cezanne, for example, painted one mountain in France (Mt. Sainte Victoire) many times in his life, and at different phases of his life. What did this “digging deep” do for him as an artist? How did the security of this large and solid mountain give him the freedom of exploration that led him to create a radically new way to paint? Arthur Dove, an
American, rivals Kandinsky for being the “first” abstract painter and did so through intense revisions and distillations.
Visions/Revisions and distillation can all be seen in the current exhibition by the TWENTY-ONE IN TRURO ensemble of women artists, of which Kate Nelson is a member.
