Artist Philip Koch will discuss how new art forms emerge—and how even seemingly traditional art can spur change—during the College’s 2023 Outten Visiting Artist Lecture.
Koch will give the lecture, “Radical Realism,” at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 13, at the Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College.
Tracing the development of his work and methods, he will highlight pivotal influencers, especially Edward Hopper, who inspired him to move from abstraction to realism.
Koch, now known for his colorful, panoramic landscapes, is a professor emeritus at the Maryland Institute College of Art. His paintings are in the collections of nearly 20 American art museums and multiple corporate collections
He has been granted 17 residencies in Hopper’s Maine studio, more than any other living American artist.
The College recently acquired his drawing, Edward Hopper’s Studio, Truro (2020), which is currently on view.
The 2023 Outten Visiting Artist Lecture, which is free and open to the public, is supported by the Outten Visiting Artist Fund. It will be preceded by a reception at 6 p.m.
