The Patterns and Rhythm's of Abstraction

The Patterns and Rhythm's of Abstraction

Course Dates March 6th - 8th (Monday - Wednesday ) 2023

Wherever we look or listen there are patterns and rhythms around us, from nature, textiles, architecture or music it’s part of our understanding of the world. Abstract artists have continued to use rhythms and repetition to inspire their practice, creating systems and structures as the pulse from which their work thrives. This three day course will explore these rhythms in painting and will develop through layering, mark making, process and expression.

Core to the course will be the importance of creating a system to underpin your work. We will then explore this by looking at the history of abstraction along with contemporary artists and their techniques, showing the dynamic new ways they are making paintings, through surfaces and processes. The course includes studio based activities and individual tutorials. You will be encouraged to use the whole space, starting with some large scale works on paper and then exploring in a number of different scales and materials. This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in abstract painting but also to any level artist who would like to develop their work in new directions and techniques.
