In an upcoming workshop (29th of February) TheoStudio will focus on painting sensations as distinct from painting light or form.
The paint stroke is not made to describe, illustrate, or please the eye. Rather, it goes directly onto the nervous system and constitutes a force that overwhelms our visual vocabulary and natural perception.
Exercises include combining forms into novel hybrids of sensations.
We don’t want to copy or imitate what is given by reality and our perception but rather unearth and discern the forces within objects and render them visible.
