The Studio as Ecosystem: Reworking Unfinished Pieces, “Misprints” and Unrealized Ideas
Everything in your life/practice has an effect on the work you create. The peripheral ideas that go unwatered, the shapes and colors you use over and over again in multiple pieces, the misprinted, unfinished works that lay in notebooks, folders or stacks in your studio. The notes you take, the screenshots on your phone- all are feeding the mystical creation being that is yourself. When we allow unfinished pieces, unrealized ideas to ferment over months and years, they become more mutable and flexible to possibility. The stack of unfinished works are lying in wait to be composted into new forms. This workshop asks you to bring those “misprints” and unused ideas that lie on the periphery of your practice so that we can weave them into new spaces and cultivate new art objects.
This is a paper based workshop – printmaking experience is preferred but not required. We will be working back into old pieces, collaging, relief printing, monotyping, painting and drawing. The work you bring can be in any form (paintings, drawings, prints, writing, doodles) as long as it’s on paper!
