Photos of ancestors — those we have known in life and those we can know only from the images — will be the sources for this workshop. These photos might trigger a narrative, imaginary or real. We might begin with an impulse for detail and description, a desire to imagine those we can know in no other way. The ultimate goal will be reduction and a search for how much is enough. By analyzing the images as designs in a rectangle, breaking down the pictorial elements through simplification and abstraction, we will build drawings and paintings that stand on their own. Mediums will include graphite, collage, acrylic and/or oil paint.

We will meet on Zoom and share the work in an online platform.

ONLINE WORKSHOP
In this still-life workshop, participants will build and light their own setups, and have a full week between meetings to explore a series of exercises in depth. Time lends depth to the painted image and frees us to pare down to the essential.
