Equilibrium: Color, Form, Composition, & Abstraction in Painting
by Seppe De Roo
About the workshop:
This workshop intends to create a space and time to explore the medium of painting for all levels and from all creative backgrounds. The main objective is the exploration of visual imagery in its basic components and how these components can be used to come to a free and personal expression in paint. This workshop centers on the equilibrium of these components and how balance and imbalance can be used as a tool of expression.
The structure of the workshop is made in such a way that every week the participants dive and research into a certain element of image-making and painting. First as a theoretical discourse, and then secondly to put that element into practice while painting. The third part of this workshop is to have individual coaching sessions to see what each interests in painting are and what could the teacher offer to get to the point participants would like to reach during the period of the workshop. The goal and intention are to have an extensive and in-depth basic knowledge of painting so participants can keep on painting on their project after the workshop has ended.
There will be also a visit to the Bozar to the David Hockney exposition (ticket not included in the price of the workshop) that’s is offered as a free and voluntary extra. This visit will be guided by Seppe De Roo.
Seppe De Roo (27) is a painter and visual artist based in Brussels Belgium. He studied painting at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. His work focuses on an exploration of collective stories (or arch-stories) that humanity has used to organize and structure different societies whereby these are synthesized in an autobiographical way. There’s a strong historical framework embedded going back to historical painting techniques, mythology, and symbolism.
His paintings are structured as a theater stage on which different persona’s of the artist live in surreal space and time.
