Event description

Description

Using the work in the H_A_R_D_P_A_I_N_T_I_N_G_X2 exhibition as a starting point we will examine how images are constructed from their painting materials. Are traditional painting approaches and applications being used or are contemporary artists using their process in their own very specific and alternative ways? This course will consider how we can use some of these approaches to create dynamic, exciting engaging marks that can affect the viewer in equally new and diverse ways.

The course aims to develop an understanding of experimental painting as an essential part of the contemporary painting vocabulary and consider the potential and value of experimental colour painting. This session will help you develop skills and techniques in colour painting application and expression working from a visual or non-visual sources.

This short course has been programmed in response to the H_A_R_D_P_A_I_N_T_I_N_G_X2 exhibition on show at Phoenix Art Space in Spring 2020.

Costs: £60
Times: 10:30 - 16:30
Date: Saturday 22 February
Room: Red
Maximum: 10

Julian Vilarrubi studied painting at the Royal Academy Schools where he won the Richard Ford Award for travel in Spain. He has made landscape paintings based on travels throughout Europe and Russia. He works en plein air as well as in the studio and drawing underpins all his work. In the last four years he has been focusing on working from the figure using an iPad as the drawing tool and he now considers this approach to be as valid as any traditional method. For him the iPad offers a whole range of exciting possibilities for the artist. He lives in Brighton where he works in his studio, undertakes commissions and teaches drawing and painting.

His first book 'Life Drawing on the iPad' was published by Crowood Press in May 2018 and is now available on-line or bookstores.
