Printmaking

Dates
Display dates: 
Friday, October 26, 2018 / Two sessions: 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 2 - 4 p.m.

Discover your unique creative voice in this workshop that will explore monoprinting using water-based inks on plexiglass. The monoprint is a form of printmaking where the image can only be made once, versus most printmaking which allows for multiple originals. All materials are provided.

About the instructors

Julie Humby, artist, art curator and assistant librarian at Ara Institute of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand will lead the printmaking workshops. Julie works primarily in glass and printmaking and is one of the featured artists in the exhibition, Art from Down Under: Australia to New Zealand, currently on display in the Main Gallery.

Artist statement:

I am passionate about the arts and its importance for everyone. I work as an Art Curator assisting other artists to realize their visions creating public works of art, and caring for the Ara Artwork Collection, as well as being a practicing artist. I am currently completing my MFA.

My own practice is often object-based, and examines the beauty in ordinary objects, whether from nature, through to domestic objects and how we interact with them. My current work examines the connection we have with the natural living world and our relationship with it through the concept of umwelt, a shared perceived order of living things. I am exploring the connection between wonder and the beauty of everyday objects in nature—the poetic potential in the ordinary. I am also interested in exploring the space in between, the areas of slippage between art and artifact, art and craft, and the relationship between object and viewer.

Dr. Vincent Alessi, senior lecturer in the Department of Creative Arts and English at La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia will assist in the workshop instruction. Dr Alessi has curated exhibitions both nationally and internationally on artists as diverse as Mike Brown, Philip Hunter, Vera Moller and Bernard Boles and on topics varying from abstraction in Australian landscape painting to notions of place and identity in contemporary practice. He has written on the works of Reko Rennie, Ash Keating, Sarah Amos, Adam Nudelman, Shane Jones, Danny Moynihan and Dean Bowen, amongst other.
