TOPIC - Artists as Social Critics

“Marc Chagall ”
Marc Chagall had to go against his family’s values to become an artist. It did not help that his family were unable to provide financial support and that Chagall belonged to the Jewish faith and living in Russia. As if that was not enough, he lived through the turbulent times of the two World Wars.
However, his paintings and stained glass windows do not reflect any bitterness. Instead his work shows love and joy. Often the colours are far from being realistic but there is a reason for this. There is a number of artists from the twentieth century whose work will live on into the many years to come and Chagall is one of this small band. The lecture includes images of his colourful paintings.
Over the years Carl has visited many military museums around the world, he has a Master’s degree in Art Education and Art History. For over twenty years Carl was a full time lecturer of tertiary Art, before an advisory Art teacher for the Education Department specialising in the program for gifted children. Currently, he is still lecturing in Art History in Perth and Mandurah.
Carl became recognized as a judge for city and regional Art Exhibitions and has frequently exhibited his own work which is in collections locally, nationally and internationally.
Apart from being guest speaker at exhibitions and conducting workshops, Carl gives tours of Art exhibitions and collections; in addition to Artrinsic he is a member of the committee for the Friends of the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery at the University of Western Australia.
