Fleisher From a Distance: Painting Abstract Landscapes
Explore the intersection between the traditional genre of landscape painting and modernist abstraction with teaching artist Martin Campos. We will talk about observational painting inspiring abstraction through the landscape, the compositional elements and color sensitivity that make a great painting, and tips for working out in the field.
Arcenio Martin Campos attended New Mexico State University for studio arts, the University of New Mexico for art history, and received a Certificate of Painting from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He began drawing on his own as a child, and between schools, acquired much of his fine art education from independent study and private instruction of the human figure. He began his teaching career conducting classes in cast drawing while still in New Mexico. He has given lectures on anatomy, figure drawing, and painting and has facilitated open figure drawing groups in Albuquerque and Philadelphia. His work has received numerous awards and has been exhibited throughout the United States and abroad.
