With Chris Baron and Randall Hasson, this presentation encompasses both the artists and the poets perspective firsthand. The talk begins with an introduction to Chris' poetry as he reads selected poems. Randall Hasson then narrates the slides of his sequential artwork, delving into the reasons behind the symbolism, design and execution of the pages. Interspersed with Chris' poetry, the presentation allows listeners to gain insight and understanding of our calligraphic art from the perspective of one whose words we illustrate. Attendees are encouraged to participate in a Q & A at the end of the presentation.
Presentation time: 1 hour 15 minutes, with Q&A following.
Randall Hasson tells the story of the collaborative project. With time for the attendees to experience the Baron journal itself, Randall then introduces Chris to the audience via slides and then narrates the slides of his sequential artwork, delving into the reasons behind its symbolism, design and execution. This presentation works well as a guild presentation in connection with either of the Journal Workshops that Randall teaches as it illustrates many of the techniques and textural effects that students will be learning in each course.
Presentation time: 45 minutes to 1 hour
