CultureHaus presents a two-day artist experience with acclaimed British artist, Stuart Semple. First up, on September 29th, meet us at the Denver Art Museum for cocktails, snacks, and an artist talk with Semple. This discussion will give attendees an in depth look into the artist’s creative process, influences, and global art experience. Semple is creating a limited edition print, available for purchase ($140) specifically to attendees. All proceeds will benefit the Denver Art Museum.
About the Artist
In Stuart Semple’s works, the emotional and spiritual impact of mass culture on the individual are re-imagined with a playful, exuberant, and sociological language. Working across painting, film, public art, sculpture, and installation, during the past 15 years Semple has brought a unique voice to the issues facing his millennial generation particularly through his perspectives on anxiety, the impact of technology, and more. Semple’s hybrid compositions are often comprised of disparate appropriated and found elements which he weaves into alluring surfaces that encapsulate a deep critical analysis of contemporary culture. His world is one of low-culture internet trash, ‘90s Nickelodeon color palettes, indie music, obscure music videos, and cultural theory straight out of the ‘60s Frankfurt school.
