Amber Wallis // Techniques in Abstracting the Representational

Sold out

Amber Wallis // Techniques in Abstracting the Representational

Guided by Amber Wallis, explore the painterly terrain where representation and abstraction meet. Look at abstraction in contemporary practice differently using varied and experimental painterly applications and techniques.

Amber Wallis will discuss and assist students to explore where representation and abstraction cross over. Often art straddles the line between representation and abstraction, revealing how ordinary objects often serve as a point of departure for an artist’s abstract vision, or, alternatively, how an artist’s abstract forms may subtly suggest recognisable elements. The class is suitable for all levels from complete beginner to more experienced artists wanting to extend their current art practice.
