A chance to look at methods of removal, process, residue and resonance by experimenting with printing, engraving and mark-making.

A series of four afternoon workshops that embrace the innovative methods of deconstruction found in the work of James Capper. Participants will learn about the use of line, mark making, repetition and layered surfaces. The workshops cater to participants of all abilities and take place in our light and airy Fine Art Studio.

Looking at the practice of James Capper as a springboard alongside the works of artists ranging from Heinz Mack, Paul Coldwell, Monika Grzymala, Julie Mehretu, Yves Klein, Fabienne Verdier, Callum Innes and Toby Ziegler, the four-week programme will focus upon trialing printing (lino cuts, mono prints), engraving (metal sheeting), painted removal processes and conceptual reportage to create new art forms.

Tutor Alex Roberts is a British artist that lives and works between Berlin and the UK. She is an artist who works with paint and translucence; addressing paintings’ surface and spatial depth. Testing the sliding scale of figuration and abstraction, her focus is how we perceive identity and change – encounters. Roberts completed her MAFA at Chelsea College of Arts, UAL, 2015. In 2016, Roberts joined The Transart Institute as an Artist Advisor, and is helping to establish a drawing programme about the figure, besides linking platforms of exchange with Drawing Projects UK.
