Simply Still Life - A Personal History

Course dates: April 23rd - 26th 2019 (Tuesday - Friday)

Suitable for all levels, including beginners. Inspired by the 'Matisse in his Studio’ exhibition, we invite you to bring your own personal objects to the studio. The objects we have about the home are often symbols of our own personal history - a souvenir, a family heirloom, a postcard, or simply an abandoned coffee mug…. each object tells a story. You will make a series of colour studies and paintings from group still life set-ups, paying special attention to fabrics and objects with sumptuous colour, pattern, texture, as well as personal association. Using different approaches to get to know the subject (through touch, writing and memory as well as visually) - the same processes can then be applied to start a painting, giving you several ways in. You will start 2 or 3 paintings, and have time to work on them to some kind of resolution. Other artists that will provide inspiration are Morandi, Soutine, Braque and Tricia Gillman.
