Reinterpreting the Landscape - Painting In Oils
15 Jan 2018 - 16 Jan 2018
Learn to reinterpret the Australian landscape using photographic imagery with painter Natalya Shinn.
Natalya will help students extend their ideas from a photo into a finished studio oil painting. This class is designed for those with some experience in oil painting.
Natalya approaches the landscape from multiple perspectives and the re-imagining of these vistas leads to amplification of colour and simplification of form. Natalya has travelled extensively throughout Australia and enjoys depicting its diverse environs, formulating emotional connections to a place with the hope of imbuing her works with more than simple pictorial representation.
Natalya Shinn studied painting at the National Art School and has been a finalist in numerous landscape, figurative and still life prizes including, the John Olsen Drawing Prize, the Fisher Ghost Art Prize, the Broken Hill Regional Gallery Open Outback Art Prize and The Pirtek Still Life Prize at Bowral Art Gallery. In 2015 Natalya was accepted for the National Art School: International and Interstate Artist-in-Residence Program in Hill End. The work produced from this residency was recently exhibited at Hazelhurst's Broadhurst Gallery in the exhibition, "To Hill End and Beyond". Since 2006 Natalya has exhibited consistently in both solo shows and numerous group exhibitions.
Cost: $210. Class takes place from 10am - 4pm on Monday 15 & Tuesday 16 January 2018.
