Workshop with Martin Campos: Figure and space

Figure and Space
with Arcenio Martin Campos
Join American contemporary figurative painter Arcenio Martin Campos in exploring the connection between figure and space in this 5 day dynamic and thought provoking workshop.
This workshop will include an introduction to Martins refined and abreviated plein air technique that aims to report and gather information in small format in a short period of time.This work is the means to creating powerful and dynamic figurative pieces. Martins observation of light in in its fleeting moments drives his figurative pieces in the studio
Students will explore the construction of form and how it relates to a real or an imagined environment . We will employ a wide variety of approaches, from the traditional, to the organic as well as the intuitive —- with the final goal to build solid design and composition. Added discussions will focus on narrative and imagination and the importance of how they correlate to drive and support an image to completion …
A model will be provided or participants may use their own personal reference.
Combined with image making, we will also discuss the importance of an artists studio and surrounding environment as an inspiration and influence.
Please Note: This workshop is suitable for artists with some painting experience.
