Each session will be a combination of demonstration, discussion, critique/review and studio practice in response to the interests of participants. Emphasis will be on developing individual expression on the basis of fundamentals underlying different media and practices – and especially on abstract considerations as the soul of compelling imagery. Special attention will be given to composition, warm and cool relationships, seeing color as visual weight, strategies for revision and unpacking examples of master paintings.
About the Instructor:
Erik Sandgren makes prints and paintings that reference the light, patterns and motion of nature and evoke the sensory experience of Pacific Northwest landscapes. Born in Oregon and educated at Yale and Cornell, he is the son of painter Nelson Sandgren (1917-2006). Since 1989 Erik has been painting Northwest lands and waters in the light of myth, history and origins. Their topographical references are observed, imagined and remembered.
