Looking at colour, experiencing colour and responding to colour are some of the great joys of learning to paint. During these hands on workshops at VISUAL, artist tutor Bridget Flannery will explore and guide participants through all aspects of colour mixing, surface preparation, and composition.
Bridget Flannery can be described as a painter of nature. Her paintings have an organic relation with certain specific areas and places – bogs, strands, cliff faces and rock formations. However, she make no attempt to reproduce the surface appearance of places but like other contemporary artists she abstracts without being an abstractionist. Her forms are closely akin to natural forms and shapes, but while their genesis may be in the natural world, they are largely autonomous and follow an internal logic of form and colour brought about by detailed looking, drawing and photography.
