Term 2. Spirituality and Abstraction.
Jan- March 2017.
Only two weeks to go of this term, so I thought I would do brief update of what the class has been up to. This has been a more reflective term often working in silence, being attentive to our breath, the marks we make, our own physicality in doing so and materials we use. We then moved on to becoming more attentive and attuned to sound and the senses, responding in colour and mark making. After a day of sitting in Old St. Paul’s Church, Edinburgh the class created a mixed media art work not of the archtiecture of the space but as response to being in the space – the silence, the sounds and atmosphere of place.
Thoughout the term we have drawn on the work of the following artists for inspiriation: Agnes Martin, Edmund De Waal, Malevich and Yves Klien, Richard Long, Kandinsky, Howard Hogkin, Sonia and Robert Delaunay amongst many other others including poets, writers and musicians.
