Course Description

This course is for those students who have experience working with Oil Paints. Be challenged both technically and conceptually as you develop your skills in oil painting. Your tutor will assist you with your own compositions or provide projects for you to try. We will explore colour, composition, techniques and processes in more depth. The subject matter for this course is broad, ranging from contemporary landscape and still life to abstraction. NOTE: you will need to bring your own materials. About your Tutor: Stephanie Reisch is an interdisciplinary artist, curator, researcher and arts educator who works from her studio in Burswood. Her practice references prehistory and natural phenomena through drawing, painting, sound and digital media. Preferring to work large-scale with oils on canvas, she subverts traditional representations of the Australian landscape by capturing not the physical forms of things or places, but rather the energy and traces left behind. Stephanie holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons) and Master of Fine Arts from the University of Western Australia and is represented by Linton & Kay Galleries. Recent exhibitions include Australian Ghosts at Lost Eden Creative, Raw Colour at Holmes á Court Gallery, All Past Futures Are Now at Linton & Kay and Sculpture at Bathers Beach 2022. Her work is held in private, corporate and public collections nationally including the Town of Victoria Park and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital Art Collection.
