ECU Fellow keynote

Convenor: Dr Paul Uhlmann

Hosted by: Contemporary Visual Arts Research Group

“…Imagination is always considered to be the faculty of forming images. But it is rather the faculty of deforming the images offered by perception, of freeing ourselves from the immediate images; it is especially the faculty of changing images. If there is not a changing of images, an unexpected union of images, there is no imagination, no imaginative action.” – Gaston Bachelard, On Poetic Imagination and Reverie

This intense one-day symposium will investigate Bachelard’s notion of forming and deforming images of the imagination in relation to the creative process. We are interested in how images come into being. What is their ontology? How do they change and adapt? How do such images arrive as words or as visual images in art and everyday life? How might such a process be of value to human existence?

At the close of the day please join us to attend the first solo exhibition held in Australia of work by Professor Paul Coldwell Small Traces.

Paul Coldwell is Professor in Fine Art at the University of the Arts London where he is based at Chelsea College of Art & Design and contributes to the CCW Graduate School.

Review of Material Things

The current issue of Art in Print carries a very generous review of the publication, Material Things, produced for the exhibition at Gallery II, university of Bradford 2015. The review by Christian Rumelin ( keeper of Prints & Drawings at the Musees d’art et d’histoire in Geneva, discusses the relationship between Coldwell’s prints & sculptures concluding that they ‘offer quiet and tender soliloquys on fundamental questions of mankind’.http://artinprint.org
