The Mono Printed Brushmark
16 Jun 2019 - 16 Jun 2019
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 and design, mono printing can be a spontaneous and exciting process that can be integrated into your own art practice.
This class will explore creating motifs, prints and textures using card board and found objects. Students will also try painting onto glass or perspex with acrylic paint using a variety of brushes and drawing, sgraffito style to create their own mono prints onto paper.
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 its 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.
