A SCHOOL FOR VISION
Can we teach art? Can we learn art?
I think, what we can do is to be attentive and focus our perception on something by seeing and hearing. This means looking into details, trying to understand, trying to recognize, to perceive in detail, through the eyes, through emotions that lead to hand, body and mind. We keep all possibilities open.
Could we call this time a “school for vision”?
How can we bring the things we perceived to paper?
How can we give the perceived a form?
This is what interests me and what would like to try, together with you.
PRINTMAKING BETWEEN TRADITION AND EXPERIMENT
The alchemy of engraving gives each of us the opportunity to take part in a creative journey.
The course aims to teach the printmaking techniques intaglio and relief through the process of drawing.
The goal is to experiment with different techniques, including drypoint, etching, aquatint, as well as woodcut and linocut.
The starting point is your drawing on paper and the search for a graphic representation that can be transferred onto different materials. The engraved pieces will also be printed.
What I cannot express with words I can express through my sculptures. For me the form is the key to communication.
This course gives us the opportunity to fully immerse ourselves in creating.
The paths can be different, it is important to me that everyone finds and recognizes their own language.
The body is our focal point, our way to look for possible variables that can support our statements and feelings.
