Description

Olivia Irvine:

Imaginative compositions

5th to 9th August, 2019


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.

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.
