The Mono Printed Brushmark
15 Jan 2018 - 15 Jan 2018
Work with Vivien Haley in this one day workshop where students will experiment and print using a variety of materials.
Whether your interest is collage, painting, or design, mono printing can be a spontaneous and exciting process that can be integrated into your own art practice.
This one day workshop will give you the opportunity to experiment and print using a variety of materials. Create motifs, prints and textures using card board and found objects. Print from a variety of materials such as fabrics or papers or paint and print by hand from glass or perspex using acrylic paint with a brush. The aim is to complete a one off print or design on paper, incorporating these techniques.
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.
