Program Description

In his painting process, Richard Estes uses photography as a basis from which to create his photorealist paintings, on view in the exhibition Richard Estes: Painting New York. Widely employed by a variety of painters, this technique allows for artists to gather the raw visual materials needed in order to construct final tableaux.

This free, daylong demonstration by local painter Gary Murphy showcases the process of using photography as source material, and reveals how this technique can inform the making of contemporary paintings.
