This Zoom workshop takes its inspiration from ‘Eleuthera’, the Sean Scully exhibition on display at the RHA Gallery. Eleuthera is a place in the Bahamas where the sand is pink and the name itself means ‘freedom’.
Scully’s artworks depict a child playing creatively in the sand – the artist being inspired by the creative activities of his son, and exploring ideas around freedom relating to the creativity of childhood. The paintings show the child in a contained circular space – something participants will recreate during the workshop. Each participant will work in and on their own circular space – a big circle of paper that will be sent to them by post upon registration.
Participants will also be invited to take their own private beach-combing adventure to collect source materials for the workshop, such as shells, stones and other interesting objects. This is an optional activity as source material will also be provided on the day.
The 90-minute workshop will take place via Zoom on June 12th. You must book in advance via Eventbrite and places are limited to 20. Please visit the RHA website for more information and to access the Eventbrite link.
