Contemporary Realism in Charcoal Drawing

Contemporary Realism in Charcoal DrawingThursday, October 3, 6:30pm-8:30pm – Broward College North Campus, 1000 Coconut Creek Pkwy., Coconut Creek

Virginia Fifield’s large-scale charcoal drawings explore how our perception of self, and sense of dominance and ownership distorts our relationship to nature. Hyper-realistic images of animal subjects are re-presented in a stark, over-scale format, deliberately devoid of color and context, aiming to spark contemplation and internal dialogue about our coexistence with the natural world. Originally from Toronto, Fifield earned her BFA from York University and studied architecture at University of Toronto. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, the Boca Raton Museum, The Hollywood Art and Culture Center and has been featured on PBS.
Broward College’s North Campus expands upon its inaugural 2012 / 2013 Artist Talk series with a new line-up of some of South Florida’s most groundbreaking, local and internationally acclaimed artists visual artists. Each of the up and coming and internationally renowned artists involved will present the diverse concepts and aesthetics within their respective bodies of work and direct a hands-on workshop the following night to further allow the public to experience and learn from their artistic processes. Free and open to the public.
