Workshop | What Water Wants with Holly Anderson

Exhibition and Shows

11 Mar 2023 Once Only Event

How does a body of water move? How might we visually describe water with watercolour’s fluid logic?

Join artist Holly Anderson for a playful painting workshop and explore the materiality of watercolours in producing images of water. Around a makeshift fountain you will be guided through speculative activities that explore this formal tension. Expect experimentation with wax resists and geometric systems to explore the form of water and produce a series of works on paper.

All materials provided — just bring a ‘go with the flow’ attitude. All experience levels welcome. Places are strictly limited, bookings essential.

This workshop is programmed alongside ‘Maluw Adhil Urngu Padanu Mamuy Moesik (Legends from the deep sitting peacefully on the waters) – Selected works from the 23rd Biennale of Sydney: rīvus’, on view at the Institute of Modern Art until 29 April.
