AJ Lawson speaks on the subject Minimalism and art

AJ Lawson is a painter in the naturalistic tradition. Graduate and former drawing instructor at The Florence Academy of Art, he is currently Director of the Alpine Fellowship.
‘To stand in front of nature with a piece of burnt stick, or a brush loaded with oil and earth is to reconnect with something that stretches back to palaeolithic man. It is something deeply human, it is an attempt to understand and an attempt to communicate.’ AJ Lawson
Since this film was made, Alan has launched a non profit retreat for Classical Painters in the Swiss alps called “The Alpine Fellowship”. To learn more, visit www.alpinefellowship.com
