Friday 13 December Artist Talk Wendy Briggs Powell from 15-16:00 hours
Wendy comes to the Netherlands to give a presentation of her work. The (English) lecture is free of charge but you have to sign up in advance via firstname.lastname@example.org! Her work evolved as a reaction against the sterile environment of the computer screen and the expectations of perfection that arise when creating with today’s technology into a more sensual process of working—one that connected heart, head and hands while aiming to convey the subtleties and nuances of the human emotional condition.
