ArtTable’s Artist Talk series is made possible by the Pollock Krasner Foundation. Originally formatted as in-person Artist Breakfasts, ArtTable has moved most programming into the virtual realm during the pandemic. Please join us for a virtual Artist Talk with Charlotte Caspers.
Charlotte Caspers (Ghent, 1979) is an artist who makes use of historical painting techniques and materials in a contemporary way. Central to her work is the subtle communication of materials, of human beings as makers, with nature as the basis of everything. She connects these themes with her specific form language and with her clearly recognisable aesthetics. Caspers studied Art History at Radboud University in Nijmegen and took the postgraduate course in painting restoration at Stichting Restauratie Atelier Limburg in Maastricht (SRAL). She specialized in historical painting materials and techniques and has made historical reconstructions for numerous museums and institutions, including the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, Tate Britain, Princeton and Duke University, and Dutch television. For ten years, Caspers has been a guest lecturer in historical painting techniques at the Department of Conservation and Restoration at the University of Amsterdam.
