    Abstract Painting Workshop with Peter Sharp

    “There is nothing more abstract than life itself.” Giorgio Morandi.

    This workshop will start with drawing from a constructed prop/sculpture which will be become the subject. Then making and constructing abstract paintings that use a variety of painterly devices and techniques.
    The students will use the initial drawings to abstract and make artwork that is unapologetic in its relationship to subject but not a copy of it.

    Different techniques will be discussed using the sculpture as a source of information.
    These techniques will include: Tonal rendering, movement, gesture, detail, shading, repetition, layering and volume.

    We will explore four key concepts that can lead to different forms of abstraction.
    They are exaggeration, manipulation, rupture and erasure.

    The students will have to re evaluate and use methods that are unfamiliar.
    This ‘unfamiliarness’ can lead to a rupture in their art making and in their understanding of how we see the world.

    Peter Sharp is a Sydney Based Artist and represented by Liverpool Street Gallery. His paintings have been exhibited in the Wynne Prize (1996, 2003), the Sulman Prize (1998, 2008) and the Dobell Prize for Drawing (2009, 2010) at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

    SharpÂ’s work is held in many significant public and private collections including the National Gallery of Australia, The Holmes a Court Collection, Artbank, The Macquarie Group Collection, New England Regional Art Museum, St Vincent's Hospital, Sports & Entertainment LTD and private collections in Australia, United Kingdom and overseas.
