In this week’s session we meet Canadian artist June Harman and talk about a new body of work she is developing that come out of her study of paleolithic cave art and imagining the experience of early homo sapiens in Europe.
We talk about the opportunities and potential pitfalls that come with exploring a new direction.

|What Questions Would you Like to Have Answered About Your Art During a Review Session?||For most of my career I have been a figure painter focused on music, dance, and expressive figures. These works are a new direction for me. They have come out of my study of paleolithic cave art and imagining the experience of early homo sapiens in Europe. However, I want to know if this series works without the viewer knowing anything about my inspiration for creating it. Are these works interesting on their own?|
