Why do we engage with some, but not all art?
Sensuality, meaning, beauty, old habits and the familiar– boredom & innovation, are all there making fashions pass and reinvent themselves, but there are elements in common through the centuries, which we can recognise and use to help us unravel works that are unfamiliar in style or form.
With examples from his own work and 5,000 years of the arts in Europe Neil will explore the language of our art habits. Lute music will precede the lecture.
Neil Morrison taught creativity and observation for more than 30 years at the Glasgow School of Art. His passion for music led him to make and play the lute professionally. He moved to Eastbourne recently having spent years living in France whilst exploring the art of the Mediterranean.
