3D abstract painting workshop with Petalia Humphreys
A playful examination of formal approaches to 2D and 3D painting | Monday 17 April
Join artist Petalia Humphreys for a playful examination of formal approaches to two-dimensional and three-dimensional painting. Exploring architectural surrounds, this workshop will guide you through Petalia’s making processes that includes digital photography – using an iPhone to capture compositions that are translated to digital and paper templates to then inform three-dimensional paintings.
Considering the potentiality of form and perception participants will work with acrylic paint to explore the 2D component of the process, then transfer designs onto a small wooden box using acrylic paint that become ‘Active Objects’. All materials will be provided. Participants will need to bring their own mobile phone or digital camera.
