Artist Lecture: Paul Laffoley
Sat, Apr 6, 2013 at 2pm
Join exhibiting artist and founder of the Boston Visionary Cell, Paul Laffoley for a discussion on the conceptual overlap between art history, architecture, classical literature, natural and occult sciences, and science fiction in contemporary painting. Laffoley moved to New York in 1963 during which time he worked as an architect by day and was recruited to view late-night TV for Andy Warhol by night. He later worked with Emery Roth & Sons on the World Trade Center towers before pursuing a career as a painter in 1965. His work often combines words and imagery to depict a spiritual architecture of explanation, tackling concepts like dimensionality, time travel through hacking relativity, connecting conceptual threads shared by philosophers through the millennia, and theories about the cosmic origins of mankind.
