Self-proclaimed kitsch painters Jeremy Caniglia and Luke Hillestad will discuss their experience working with the figurative master Odd Nerdrum at the Nerdrum School during a December lecture that could illuminate the future of figurative painting. When and where?
Wet Paint Artists’ Materials & Framing in Saint Paul, Minnesota, will be the venue for an engaging art history talk with acclaimed painters Jeremy Caniglia and Luke Hillestad. On December 16 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., the two Odd Nerdrum pupils will discuss a number of fascinating topics, including the different techniques and approaches used at the Nerdrum School — such as the Apelles palette, toning of the canvas, imprimatura, color layering, sanding, and glazing — different approaches to build a composition, and a discussion of masterworks from Odd Nerdrum’s canon.
Examples of Caniglia’s and Hillestad’s works will be on display for the talk. Interested parties must reserve a spot by contacting Wet Paint. To learn more, visit here.
