The Paradox of Self-Discovery: an artist talk with Jas Knight
In this talk, Jas will discuss an approach to self-discovery and expression based in the study of previous great works of art. He will present this path as an excellent way to address the formal elements of painting and the development of a concept which is unique to the individual.
