Hosted by George Spencer.
Monthly conversations with creative types and other diversions. This Thursday, George will be talking with Fern Apfel, a Kinderhook-based visual artist. Her work involves remnants of the past: old stamps, pages of diaries, pieces from well-thumbed books. She rearranges words and images from another time and place into paintings that remind us about the symbiotic relationship between our past and our present and urge us to rethink the boundaries between language and painting and narrative and abstraction. Examples of her work can be seen on her website at ferntapfel.com.
