The Mono- Printed Brush Mark
16 Jul 2017 - 16 Jul 2017
Explore experimental printing techniques with Vivien Haley.
An opportunity to experiment with techniques such as mono printing, sgraffito and block printing by hand, using acrylic paint on glass, perspex, wood or found objects. Students will refine these techniques so they may be incorporated into art practices such as design, collage, paintings and prints.
On the day the class will work towards making final prints on paper from student's own designs or drawings.
Artists who use the mono printed brushmark technique as part of their visual language include Robert Motherwell, Pierre Bonnard, Pablo Picasso, Tracy Emin, Henri Matisse, Edgar Degas, Charles Blackman, George Baselitz and Andy Warhol.
The tutor, Vivien Haley, studied Sculpture and Printmaking at the National Art School in Sydney. Initially exhibiting with the Sculpture Society at The Rocks, she has exhibited with Stella Downer Fine Art in the last decade. Inspired by Japanese aesthetics and interpretation of nature, Vivien's work reflects the landscape and it's subtle colour palette and organic design. Working as a sculptor, textile printmaker and artist, her practice has continued for some 30 years exhibiting in both private and public galleries throughout Australia.
