Understanding Abstraction

Thursday, September 3, 2020 at 7:00 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

Part 5 and 6 of this Virtual Lecture Series with Alex Shundi

Understanding Abstraction

This evening will be both Session 5 and 6 combined, in order to make up for the previous session that was cancelled due to a power outage. All sessions are viewable once you register and these lectures will be kept available for a number of months following the end of the series. You will receive a link for all  the upcoming sessions on the day of the lecture.


Join Alex Shundi as he explores the excitement  of understanding new ways of seeing and thinking.This class is designed to help decipher and appreciate the modern artistic methods of abstraction. It is not to convince or argue, but to explain and illuminate.

Abstraction is very much a discipline of modernity, an arena of analysis and a study of essential findings. This has touched every aspect of today ‘s life, from atomic science to mechanics, from medicine to microbiology, from computers to astronomy, transportation to communication we are bombarded by new languages of shapes, we read and appreciate an endless myriad of graphs and symbols, and live in a world of instant communication and more than complex objects, none of which existed pre-Industrial Revolution.
Because of this we have discovered how to allow for visual expression to define non-objective realities: cold, love, fright, envy, compassion, etc..


Abstraction has liberated our expressive needs and allowed for feelings and descriptions of all our senses, not limited to vision, but to objective reality, senses, and the spirit, memory and wishes, colors and the beauty of visual rhythms.


Cost: The price of $72 is for all 6 sessions. Sessions will be recorded and made available for viewing shortly after to participants.
