University of St. Michael's College - Sculptor Farhad Nargol-O’Neill: Transepts of St. Michael’s Cathedral

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 6, 2016 - 5:00pm

WHAT: Sculptor Farhad Nargol-O’Neill was commissioned to depict the Rosary in bas-relief for the North and South Transepts of St. Michael’s Cathedral.

In this talk, Nargol-O’Neill will discuss the material, technical, biblical, and compositional elements involved in his work, including the nature of carving bas-relief in plaster and its material quality as it relates to light and shadow, as well as the importance of working with these materials in the digital age.

Nargol-O’Neill will also delve into Dante's metaphor of weightlessness and how this was used as a compositional device joining biblical narratives with the experience of Christ.

Presented by the University of St. Michael's College in the University of Toronto.

Lecture at 5 - 6 pm, Reception at 6 - 7 pm
