Matt Baird | Expression Inspired by Music and Text
Quite often as visual artists we focus on the viewing aspect when it comes to our subject of choice, for example representations of a landscape, a portrait, a still object, or a photograph. We develop skills of visual observation, really looking at or into something. A lesser used skill in art making is using our ears or minds eye (text and memory) to examine a subject.
Utilising drawing, painting and or collage this Weekend Workshop focusses on the art of listening and of reading descriptive texts for a deeper creative experience.
The workshop will be delivered in two parts:
Part 1. Music - We will utilize the power of listening. Through the act of drawing, mark making, painting and or collage you will respond directly to a piece of music.
Part 2. Text – Again we will utilize the power of listening. Through the act of drawing, mark making, painting and or collage you will respond directly to a written piece.
Images: untitled work, ink pen on paper by Vasco Mourao, inspired by 'Invisible Cities' text, and 'Jazz Vision is the fusion of music and art a real paradox of same-different' by Kitty Sabatier.
Suitable for all levels.
Classes will be held at Shop 4/10 Station St, Bangalow.
