At this social night talk, Peter will introduce and discuss:
1. How still life painting develops the artist's understanding of the essential elements of painting.
2. How an investigative approach to the still-life advances an artists personal journey.
This discussion will be supported by samples of Peter's own work.
NOTE: Peter will be tutoring a term of classes later in the year in Term 5 on Monday mornings.
OUR LAST SOCIAL NIGHT: 27 MARCH at 7-30pm
Guest Speaker: Renate Nisi
Renata Nisi at our Social Night on Wednesday 27 March, 2019, with one of her works.
Guest Speaker: Renate Nisi
Renate gave a fascinating presentation about her art practice, which encompasses the making of sculptural objects and installations that explore aspects of embodiment.
Her slide presentation provided plenty of examples of her inspired use of a wide variety of techniques and materials, including paper, bone, shell, pewter and Mt Gambier stone, as well as marble, to produce astounding results.
Renate graduated from Adelaide Central School of Art in 2001 and completed an MA in Visual Art at the University of South Australia in 2012.
In 2006 Renate started Union Street Studios as a teaching studio and shared studio space, where she and other tutors conduct art groups and workshops.
She also teaches Sculpture at the Adelaide Central School of Art.
