Seeing Differently: How an Artist Experiences the World
Green Mountain Academy presents a lecture, ‘Seeing Differently: How an Artist Experiences the World’ to take place on Wednesday, October 29, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., at the Southern Vermont Arts Center’s Yester House.
No two individuals are identical, nor do they experience life in the same way. Those who work in the fine arts—painters, architects, musicians, writers, performers, etc. seem to live in an entirely different convention. What is it about their thought process that helps them perceive what others don’t (or can’t)? Artworks often derive from intense experiences of routine, convention and narrative. Artists use these same tools to create and share their own personal realities with viewers.
Angus McCullough is an
architect, photographer, videographer, sculptor and performance artist. His work has been exhibited at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, Judson Memorial Church (New York City), Burlington City Arts, and the Bennington Museum.
McCullough will discuss three perspectives: input, output and aesthetics, to help us question how we process and understand our everyday environment, and whether we are truly “seeing” the rich world of inspiration that is all around us.
