Student/Artist work made at our workshops in Melbourne.
These were made just this week by three different artists. Congratulations Galia for the striking collage of body/machine, Congrats Helen for the earthy abstract painting, there are human forms within this painting, I can see them, Congrats Jan for the abstract that we discussed as accidentally having cirrus and other cloud formations within it.
Great work everyone.
It can be quite difficult to change from observational drawing/painting to abstract and to collage. My advice would be to keep it very simple, complexity, if needed can come later. I do prefer collage to be easy to read and therefore with less distractions. The focal point is usually a surreal image that needs to be absorbed by the viewer and this should be enough without clouding a work with things happening on the periphery.
Have a great weekend everyone.
