On Friday, June 8th, 2012 an educational program will take place at LMNT, a workshop and lecture by Israeli artist Ted Barr. As an innovator of new techniques such as the multi-layered tar painting, Barr carefully controls colors and fluidity creating new textural appearances that captivate viewers. Barr’s favorite motto is “As Above So Below” meaning that the human body, spirit, society, world and universe are connected as every moon, planet, star, cluster and galaxy are interrelated.
