CONVERSATIONS WITH ART : Javier Molina
Friday 26 October 2018
6pm to 6.45pm
‘Conversations with Art’ consist of a dialogue between the artist, the questioner and the audience directly through an art work. Each month we talk to a new artist and focus on a specific art work.
The next conversation will be between Tim Cousins and the photographer Javier Molina
Javier follows Alfred Stieglitz’s dictum ‘It is not what I see but how I see it’. His work attempts to bridge the gap between painting and photography. Tim Cousins, the questioner, suggests also that there is a connection between Javier’s work and film. Having just come back from looking at Caravaggio’s work in Rome and Tim was struck by how filmic the work was. Two of Javier’s influences have indeed been Caravaggio and also David Lynch. These influences can be seen in the two photographs that we will be looking at; the first a still life and the second a self-portrait. Whilst photo-realist work is sometimes mistaken for a photograph, so Javier’s photographs can be mistaken for paintings.
This conversation ties in with an exhibition at Art Hub Gallery, 5-9 Creekside over the road from APT Gallery, entitled ‘Dungeness Desert’. In the exhibition you can see the work of thirteen artists, including Javier Molina and Tim Cousins, encountering the extraordinary landscape surrounding Dungeness.
A.P.T Artist, Tim Cousins, set up ‘Conversations with Art’ in October 2013 and this is the first in the sixth series of dialogues that have been held at A.P.T.
Seating in the studio is limited. Please arrive at A.P.T Gallery at 5.45pm to be escorted to Tim Cousins’ studio on the second floor.
The conversation will last 45 minutes (6pm to 6.45pm).
