‘THE FIGURE IN MOTION’ – one day workshop

“What happens when you draw another human moving? Interpreting movement leaves little room for what is unimportant or irrelevant. For me this sense of urgency has become liberating.”  Emmy Mavroidis

This unique workshop is designed by artist Emmy Mavroidis. It provides students with techniques which aim to develop an understanding of what drawing movement is and how to approach it.  Practice responding and connecting in a dynamic approach to drawing and sculpting the figure in wax  from life whilst the life model is in motion.  Learn about:

Dynamic movement, rhythm and balance, compositional movement.

We will reference artists throughout history who have been influenced by movement and look at its relevance today in contemporary art.

Emmy Mavroidis has been exhibiting since graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts in 1986.

‘I sculpt by manipulating wax which is then cast in bronze. The chewy stretchy character,of this wax, suggests the ephemerality of movement. I chase the movement, not in a literal sense but as evidence of the memory of what has happened.

There is an evolution in the way marks are made too. The movement becomes a shape. The movement becomes a form. The space around and in between is just as important, as it emphasises the relationship, tension and connection to each other. As we move through time and as we move through the space we occupy we respond to each other and what is happening around us… It is just ‘What We Do’.”
