Gallery Conversation » The Four Seasons
with artist Philip Haas

Join us for an exclusive talk with artist and filmmaker Philip Haas as he presents a conversation about his outdoor sculptures, The Four Seasons. Haas’s monumental 15-foot sculptures are inspired by the Italian Renaissance painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s painted portraits of the same name, comprised of fruits, vegetables, flowers, branches, and bark, which represent each of the four seasons. The results are at once grotesque, earthy, and exuberanta commentary on Arcimboldo’s style and works of art in their own right. Haas, in marrying sculpture, painting, film, and architecture, has created a contemporary visual vocabulary all his own. He describes his process as “sculpting by thinking.”

Free, no registration required.
