[CANCELLED] Emma Walker: Mark Making Workshop

Provided by:

Event runs from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM


Join artist Emma Walker in this intensive one day drawing workshop. Emma Walker consistently and evocatively engages with the natural world, looking at the patterns and rhythms that recur in nature. Carving, sanding, digging, grinding, glazing, dripping and scratching into layered timber, the artist creates a unique process and approach to her sculptural wall paintings. From ancient landscapes of sea, rock and sky to the microscopic patterns and rhythms that power existence, her work moves between the micro and the macro in a formative dance. As much about the process of painting as they are with visually imprinting the Australian environment, Walker’s unique imagery emerges from a combination of experimentation and automaticity, each mark growing from the next in a catalytic reaction that emulates the geological occurrences that cause continents to move and shorelines to reshape, etching on the faces of rocks, rivers and ravines.
