Workshop I – Shapes and Colours of Australia – With Artist Wyn Vogel – 2nd Biennale Internationale de l’Aquarelle de Coquelles – 2018
We will be working with the colours and shapes of Australia – introducing you to the shadows and shapes of our most well-known landmark – Uluru (Ayers Rock) and neighbouring mountain range - Kata Tjuta (Olgas) and the colours of our Coastal Beaches - which are home for Wyn and her family!
Australia is very centrally located in the Asian Corridor and Artist Wyn Vogel has grown up with this influence of ‘Oriental’ imagery!
We will work with special brushes – called ‘Needle Point Squirrel’ brushes No 10 - which have a long-tapered shape to the hairs of the brush and allow you to make a very calligraphic mark with your brush.
These brushes are produced in Australia and there is enough brushes for 12 participant/s at each Workshop to have one brush to use and keep as a memento of our Workshop – thanks to NEEF Australia for this ‘support’.
Wyn works with inks and watercolour – layering shadows with her ink and then washing the blues of the Australian sky and red and yellow ochres of the Australian Outback/Central Australia – across the detail!Find out more »
Workshop 2 – 2018 Aquarell’Eure Festival – Gaillon – Shapes and Colours of Australia – Artist Wyn Vogel
Détail de l’atelier:
Nous allons travailler avec les couleurs et les formes de l’Australie – vous présentant les ombres et lesformes de notre point de repère le plus connu – Uluru (Ayers Rock) et la chaîne de montagnes voisine – Kata Tjuta (Olgas)
L’Australie est très central dans le Corridor asiatique et l’artiste Wyn Vogel a grandi avec cette influence de l’imagerie «orientale»!
Nous allons travailler avec des brosses spéciales – appelées «Needle Point Squirrel» brosses No 10 – qui ontune forme allongée aux poils de la brosse et vous permettent de faire une marque très calligraphique avec votre pinceau.
Ces brosses sont produites en Australie et il y a suffisamment de brosses pour que 12 participants à chaque atelier aient un pinceau à utiliser et gardent comme souvenir de notre atelier – merci à NEEF Australie pour ce ‘soutien’.
Wyn travaille avec des encres et des aquarelles – en superposant des ombres avec son encre puis en lavant le bleu du ciel australien et des ocres rouges et jaunes de l’Outback australien / de l’Australie centrale – à travers les détails!Find out more »
Swedish Artist Jonas Pettersson is bringing his experimental 'Water Colour Pipe Organ' and remotely communicating Robotics to Australia.
Creatives will have 2 opportunities to Work with Jonas on various aspects of his Artistic Practice:
Workshop I - 25th August 2018 will be dedicated to exploring the ancient art of 'Cyanotype Printing' and other painting techniques to give your watercolour/print and/or photography work a new edge! We will also be showcasing on the big screen - Jonas' Studio in Hassela - Sweden ........... some of his experimental film and digital music work - during the week of his Art Residency!
Jonas will introduce you to using 'Water' as your developer and 'Sunlight' as your light source!
Workshop II - Tues/Wed - 28/29th August 2018 - A Workshop for New Media Students with a grasp of programming.
In particular Jonas will show how to make the best use of programming techniques such as SignalR, node.js & other programming methods to make components talk remotely - & servers, using triggers etc… he will detail the flow between web clients & Working with his ‘Watercolour Pipe Organ’ Jonas will with the help of students assemble, tune it and prepare for show and remote control.
Artists who book for the Workshop I - will be welcome to come as observers for the 2nd Workshop II - to see how the Watercolour Pipe Organ comes together and be part of the team to paint with the capability!Find out more »
What has Cyanotype Printing, Watercolour Pipe Organs and Remote Talking Robotics got in common – Workshop II
Who should check this out!
New Media Students – Interested in robotics and remote communication strategies – Jonas will share his work which includes the use of programming techniques such as SignalR, node.js and other programming methods to make components talk remotely – he will detail the flow between web clients and servers, using triggers and 3D printed parts.
The major work during the two day workshop will be putting all the components together, tune the pipes and see so everything is working.
Jonas is aiming to make at least 2-2.5 meters pipe - these will be made from art paper and fitted with the 3D printed parts - the 'Pipes' can be painted or Workshop participants can decide to leave them unpainted - however, this may be a challenge for our Workshop I - Artists to come back and help at this point!Find out more »
