Artist’s talk | Drawing a Green Future: Metaphysics, Mentor & Comics by Professor Chip Sullivan
Tent Gallery, Edinburgh
BY BEA MARTIN
Chip Sullivan, professor of Landscape at Berkeley, kicks off the opening of his exhibition at the Tent Gallery in Edinburgh, with a talk outlining a process for creative practice that builds upon historic approaches while imagining new possibilities for a “functional metaphysics” of landscape architecture.
Chip Sullivan’s ecological narrative charts a map to a world of wonder, imagination, and mystery. For decades, Chip has expounded on the meaning and perception of landscape through his innovative pedagogy, representational techniques, and writing. The philosophy and application of sustainable design through the lens of art and ecology has been the consistent focus of his explorations. Chip will outline a process for creative practice that builds upon historic approaches while imagining new possibilities for a “functional metaphysics” of landscape architecture.
This lecture will also explore the spiritual dimensions of landscape. What is the power of these special places. This presentation will propose creative methodologies and look at how the sequential narrative can make visible the hidden flows of energy inherent in a landscape.
