In this workshop, artist Joe Furlonger returns to the formal subject of the figure and will lead students in life drawing exercises that focus on the process of drawing. Working from a life model for the first part of the workshop, students will start with drawings – working from both quick and longer poses – and then have the opportunity to develop works further or explore through various mediums under the tutor’s guidance.
For more than 30 years, Queensland artist Joe Furlonger has been blurring the line between art and life. Restlessly creative, Furlonger draws every day - he draws incessantly, with pencil, charcoal, brush, pen or crayon…The quick, spontaneous transfer of his observations onto paper is at the heart of all Furlonger's artistic activities, from painting and printmaking to ceramics and sculpture… For Furlonger, as for so many great modernists, the figure and the landscape have been sufficient for the most rigorous and exhilarating visual experiments.
