WORKSHOPS: DRAW TOGETHER: DOUBLE DISH-ILLUSION
13 Aug 2016 | 10.30am - 12.00pmBook Tickets
Join Roy Marchant and Sandra Dodds for Double Dish Illusion examining two works by Anish Kapoor, Untitled 2002 and Hollow 2012, which feature in the exhibition Refugees until 11 September.
Simultaneously concave and convex, these works by the Indian born, British artist, offer the viewer a multitude of focal points, but never an exact entry or exit. Kapoor choreographs the viewer as equally as he manipulates materials into redefining and testing the boundaries of appearance. Kapoor’s sculptures employ two dimensional illusion in a three dimensional encounter.
In a micro world turned upside down, floating and saturated with colour; how do we begin to find place within such turmoil or are we just happy to be momentarily lost?
Double Dish Illusion will examine Kapoor’s manipulation of substance, form and colour in a creative democracy that encourages both investigation and outcomes
Draw Together is a regular drawing workshop held twice during every exhibition at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre. All ages and abilities are welcome; simply bring your enthusiasm for art. You will be guided through a series of individual and collaborative drawing exercises responding directly to our exhibited artworks. Appreciate the value of drawing, develop visual thinking skills and create something new in an inspiring atmosphere. Reserve your spot now or drop in on the day.
