Course Information

The course will start by using Asemic writing to create playful surfaces that form the basis of abstract compositions. It will then develop onto colour allowing time to explore in more depth both the surface and scale. You will be encouraged to explore the surrounding land and seascape to find what it is that stimulates a personal visual imagination: what forms lodge in the mind, that will become the motif and focus for the work. These may be objects of a smaller domestic scale or vast panoramas. The final part of the course will be to choose an image or a series of particular images, that will somehow integrate, or be placed upon the under structure created in the studio. This will be the challenge: to bring abstraction and motif together in a whole and coherent way. We will aim to work on a large scale format to allow for development over the sessions.
