Ted Julian Arnold
This quarter, Home Remedies is highlighting the work of Portland artist Ted Julian Arnold in our loft space. Ted’s art has brought new life to our walls; come on in and experience it for yourself!
We are lucky to be showing paintings from two of his collections: Musicians, and Teacups. Here’s how Ted speaks about his work:
The Musicians are a series of paintings inspired by a performance of the All-Portland School Band, and several band concerts in different districts thereafter. The school band is always on the endangered species list. Yet each year a small legion picks up the trombones of their ancestors, and with hope, fear, faith and sweat, begins the ancient human struggle to let our spirit out of its cage.
Tea is not tea is not tea. Tea is a moment set aside, a receptacle into which reminisces or plans are poured. Having tea or coffee can involve anything except the hectic pace of every day. There can be music, plans, regrets, good or bad news to share or recover from. Even the teacup is not necessarily a teacup, but is frequently a coffee cup, or (rarely) a boullion cup, and always is a character in the drama of the painting. The cups and pots and creamers are from many lands and of many persuasions like people in our cities. What are they doing here?What do they say to each other in the garden of the tablecloth?
Ted is also giving a painting class in our Factory Area!
This will be a hands on painting class. Painters will be working on their own work and ideas in oils or acrylics. Some artists will have a lot of experience, and some very little. The class will be a small group and instruction will be ongoing and individual.
Useful knowledge about pigments, painting techniques, permanence and impermanence, collage, and other relevant techniques will be covered.
