Explore key concepts that guided the work of landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx in this class taught by artist Mark Joshua Epstein. Following an in-depth walkthrough and discussion of the exhibition Roberto Burle Marx: Brazilian Modernist, participants will practice the art of finding abstraction in nature, investigating the relationship between topography and composition in order to create textural and layered abstract paintings that use the world around us as inspiration.
