I will be making a presentation at The Representational Art Conference 2015, November 1-4, in Ventura, CA. The topic I will be addressing is “Meaning and Purpose: Morality and Politics in 21st Century Representational Art.” I am surveying the content of 21st century work and the way it is expressed, comparing with Old Masters’ works, and I am looking at how representational art is presented to the world.

It turns out to be relatively easy to obtain high resolution images of Old Master paintings for an effective presentation. Getting the work of living artists is another story, which I devoutly hope will have a happy ending!
