CHATEAU ORQUEVAUX RESIDENCY
The first two weeks of September 2020 were to have been the time of my residency at Chateau Orquevaux, an artist retreat held in a magnificent chateau in the Champagne-Ardenne region of France. COVID-19 put a hold on those plans for this year, pushing my visit back a full year to next September.

MIND OF THE ARTIST BLOGPOST
In May of 2019, as a member of the Capitol Hill Art League, I wrote a post for the Mind of the Artist blog of the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, in which I discussed my artistic style in terms of composition and my interpretation of the concept of abstract realism. I also demonstrated the application of these ideas to my Kasha-Katuwe series which I had just begun at the time. You can read the post at: Mind of the Artist: Robert Lipartito.
