He depicted scenes of urban leisure pursuits of the bourgeois and the working class – fully modern, and typically Impressionist, he avoided using the ‘local’ or true color of things. Seurat was fascinated by a range of scientific ideas about color, form and expression.
Redefining materials and function with an artful backdrop, Australian Designer Alejandro Nam brings his aesthetics to LA. He will be discussing his work which explores the idea of object function and worth against the backdrop of our post-consumer society.
This free masterclass will include a hands-on project where participants will experiment and create their own custom ANBlocks piece (think wood blocks meet design) with materials that would otherwise be discarded.
Participants will be provided with a wide range of images to choose from, or participants may bring in their own inkjet printed images. Images will be transferred onto clay and fired. At the end of the workshop, each participant should have four to five unique pieces of art.
His dramatic, imaginative, rhythmic, and emotional canvases convey far more than the mere appearance of the subject.
His style has continued to affect artists and movements throughout the 20th century and up to the present day.
Because of his preference for the painting of interior and domestic scenes, he is often referred to as an “intimist,” along with his friend Pierre Bonnard, with whom he shared a studio.
Vuillard painted many pictures of women sewing because his mother worked as a dressmaker, this explains the presence of so many patterned fabrics in his paintings into which his figures were embedded. They appear locked into their surroundings creating a beautiful struggle between figure and space with sumptuous colors and patterns.
