One Hour / One Painting with Peter Clothier, Laguna Art Museum, August 28

 

Date: August 28, 2014altoon_web

Time: 7:00 pm

In One Hour/One Painting, author and critic Peter Clothier invites small groups of participants to sit in front of a single artwork for a full hour. Clothier begins with a brief introduction to the principles of closed-eye breath meditation, encouraging participants to relax and refresh the eyes. This leads to an alternation of closed- and open-eye work, with the facilitator guiding the process with brief instructions and directions.

Peter Clothier is a long time observer of the contemporary art world and a widely published -writer. His publications include fiction, poetry, and a memoir, as well as David Hockney (a monograph), and a collection of political essays, The Bush Diaries. His most recent book is Mind Work: Shedding Delusions On The Path To The Creative Core, a series of essays examining the importance of self-examination to the creative process. His other recent publication, Persist: In Praise Of The Creative Spirit In a World Gone Mad With Commerce, addresses the predicament of the creative individual in a culture in which celebrity and money trump talent and quality of work.

A graduate of Cambridge University, Clothier came to the U.S. in 1964 for the Writer’s Workshop at the University of Iowa. Graduating with a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature, he came to L.A. in 1968 to teach at USC. He became Dean and Director of Otis Art Institute, and was Dean of Fine and Communication Arts at Loyola-Marymount University before leaving academia in 1986 to devote himself full time to writing. He has been happily unemployed since then and describes himself as a recovering academic.
