Conceptual art needs to develop; change is the only constant. Just as the mind cannot operate without an external reality, conceptual art now recognizes the non-verbal languages that operate alongside the intellect, and which require skill to master just as a writer does in order to communicate effectively. The long awaited ‘death of painting’ is an unrealistic expectation. The study of non-verbal languages dates back to Charles Darwin, and scientists have repeatedly weighted in since. Kevin Zeng Hu at MIT Media Lab writes “we all know how unwieldy texting can be and how much context can be lost, especially emotional context. Once you include the visual, you have a higher bandwidth to convey nuance.” Science tells us that painting cannot die anymore than literature; both offer different kinds of notations in use since the dawn of recorded time.

A Conceptual Ecology of Art is a collaboration between Iain Baxter& C.C., international Canadian conceptual artist, with a lifelong commitment to ecology and art, and  Miklos Legrady, a visual artist and peer-reviewed scholar. 100 large paintings are available. The project consists of paintings, acrylic on cardboard, pinned or nailed to the wall. Where applicable, paintings can also hang from the ceiling, and lean against each other on the floor (like playing card)s in the middle of the room. The images can also be projected on walls or  shown on multiple large rented monitors.

This collaboration between artists Iain Baxter& C.C. and Miklos Legrady is similar to Rauschenberg‘s “Erased DeKooning Drawing", but instead of erasure there's additions, an origami of images and ideas. Both artists risk their independence. autonomy, and creative control; collaboration here  obscures the limits of authorship.. We started on art and ecology, end up with the ecology of art. Still, we’re all walking on thin ice. To which the andMAN added "just like the whole wide world is on thin ice with Global Warming now

The political course of this work is informed by LBGTQ positivity and cultural diversity. Here we explore what images say. To which Iain Baxter& added "and how all of us in the whole wide world today must now change our ways and apply constant ECO-EMPATHY* from each of us, so we can all together save our Mother Earth".   *ECO-EMPATHY, a word coined by the andMAN, and the andMAN also created in 2010a special eco-artwork entitled 10 ECOmmandments.

Une ’cologie conceptuel de d’art


Les grandes peintures en carton de Legrady questionnent les croyances culturelles et les vues actuelles de l’art.Ils parlent aussi de l’artiste naviguant le système culturel, et comment ils abordent les structures autoritaires cachées, les dispositifs institutionnels et les déséquilibres de pouvoir.Non seulement ces peintures nous permettent de voir le monde différemment, mais aussi ils attirent notre attention vers ce que nous ressentons à ce sujet.
