Paul Young, a teacher of drawing and perspective at the Ontario College of Art of Design, goes from his final classes as a teacher into his first year of retirement. After 33 years of dedication to his students, he strives to become the artist he always dreamed of being.
Deconstructing the solitary image often associated with painters, Nik Sheehan’s intimate snapshot of a beloved mentor perceives the act of drawing as a radical form of communal dialogue. Here, art-making promises freedom of the mind, yet it also requires extraordinary discipline and compromises.
