Course of artistic expression

The creative process and intuition in artistic expression

Within a landscape’s time of change, which is variable depending on the moment that we want to capture, the workshop starts with the intention of exploring the creative process and intuition in artistic expression, and as we proceed and record impressions, we start to produce work.

course

Carrying out various exercises (attention, concentration, use of materials, markings and other) we will be led to unexpected places, from a place of subjectivity and affect, intuition and sensitivity, moving away from an ‘idea’.

In that place of concentration, a personal object, an emotion, or an image will reveal itself through a process that will be discovered, in order to make work that can be painting, drawing, performance, etc.

Along with the practical exercises, we will look at the paths of other artists in order to identify those moments of intuition.
