Event description
Do you want to be figurative and abstract at the same time

About this Event

Imaginative compositions

Have you ever wanted to break away from painting what you see and work more from memory and imagination? Do you want to make things up, but still retain a sense of structure? Do you want to be figurative and abstract at the same time?

Using acrylic paint, monoprinting and collage you will work from memory, imagination and on the spot drawings to create imaginative compositions that straddle the figurative and the abstract. A series of experimental exercises will lead into a personal project which will open up new directions. Expect a playful yet structured week.

This course is suitable for experienced artists as well as those who have had less or no experience, but have a spirit of adventure. It is also suitable for those who have previously done Olivia’s Imaginative Compositions course, as each time the dynamics are different.

All levels of experience are welcome.All necessary materials will be provided and light lunches and refreshments will be available. Please notify us at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements.

Note the 10% Early-Bird discount for payments made before the end of January 2021!

Artist's Bio

Olivia Irvine graduated from Edinburgh College of Art. She then gained a Spanish Government Scholarship for a year’s study in Madrid followed by an MA in European Fine Art in Barcelona. Her own painting has moved from figurative to abstract and now resides somewhere between the two. She teaches short courses in Art and Design at the University of Edinburgh and has a studio at WASPS in Edinburgh. She had an exhibition of paintings called ‘Parallel Places’ at the Moray Art Centre in 2017 and, since then, has had solo shows at the French Institute and the Union Gallery, both in Edinburgh. She recently took part in a micro-residency with NHS Tonic Arts, ‘Life Under Lockdown’.
