My Appreciation of Watercolor: A Personal View with Tullis Johnson
A lecture and discussion, My Appreciation of Watercolor: A Personal View with Tullis Johnson – Don't Think about the Medium, will be held Friday, November 15, from 12:30 to 1:00 p.m. in the Burchfield Penney Art Center. Free for Buffalo State faculty, staff, and students.
In an interview from 1959, Charles Burchfield told John D. Morse, "I couldn’t possibly tell anybody how to paint in watercolor.... I told them: 'Don't think about the medium. What you're trying to say is much more important than what you're saying it with.'" This presentation will focus on Burchfield's unique use of the watercolor medium. Unfinished works that reveal his technique and other works that might be called multimedia will be examined and discussed.
