Judith White, New South Wales. Mixed Media.
This workshop aims to expand the idea of the landscape beyond the usual narrative-based format. By considering personal memories and using imaginative and abstract ideas the landscape can express a unique sense of place that resonates on a personal level. This helps to move away from the photo reproduction idea in landscape painting. Demonstrations using mixed media will help you understand contemporary art practice and how to control the issues of colour, collage, transparent layering and surface texture. You’ll have the opportunity to follow process step by step, planning your painting, working through layers, and understand how you can solve your own visual problems. This workshop is open to the experienced artists aged 20 years and over who wish to further their creativity under the guidance of one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists/tutors.
