Course Description

A mixed media course where students are guided through the steps and processes of creating an abstract landscape with wet and dry media. You will develop expression in your work, explore colour and experiment with mark-making using a range of media with a focus on watercolour applications. This course will guide students through the various steps and processes towards abstracting a landscape from photographic references as well as the surrounding Tresillian grounds. About 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. About the Course This course will guide students through the various steps and processes towards abstracting an image, both visually and conceptually. Students will observe and develop expression in their work, consider perspective and dynamic, tackle small and large-scale compositions, experiment with wet and dry media, as well as explore unconventional supports and substrates. The course will begin with an overview of basic techniques, so it is suitable for beginners through to more advanced.
