A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Landscape has become an urgent subject. In response, the author is developing three plein air painting projects, Latitude, Longitude, and Antipodes, each of which combines life study and abstraction to recount the colour, light, and motif of many places. In the most general terms this tri-part painting project is an attempt to describe the uniqueness of the local while maintaining a global perspective. Although the improvisational painting process remains constant within these three projects, the location for each series shifts. For Latitude, he remained in one place for an extended period to paint the changes of season as the earth shifted on its axis. For Longitude, he travelled along the 70th line of longitude to four locations between the Arctic Circle and the Equator to paint the changes of region. For Antipodes, he travelled to locations that are on opposite points of the globe to paint a comparison. N° de réf. du libraire AAR9781555953195

Synopsis :

? The record and results of one man's artistic and ecological adventure Artist and Williams College art professor Mike Glier has translated his preoccupation with man's connection to nature into a series of precisely plotted journeys. For Along a Long Line, he traveled to four disparate locations along the 70th longtitude to experience and paint the very diverse environments and landscapes offered along this narrowly defined slice of the earth. His itinerary included sub-Arctic Canada, the Ecuadorian rainforest, sub-tropical St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands-and New York City. While his colorful abstract landscapes are at the forefront here, also included are Glier's detailed blog entries and photographs. The result: a story of discovery and intense observation, recounted with enthusiasm and the technical mastery of plein air painting in the tradition of Audubon.
