Many artists feel that their work is all over the map, they are pulled in too many different directions, and that their creative output lacks a cohesive voice. And yet when they try to stick to a consistent style, they quickly get bored and want to try something new. Does this sound familiar?
In this workshop we will unpack the concept of the “cohesive voice” in an artist’s work. What is it? And how do you develop one? Is the idea of cohesion something imposed by culture or is it inherent in the artist? Or is it a self-imposed barrier to artistic freedom?
I believe that you can work in many styles, and still have a unique and recognizable voice as an artist. In this workshop we will explore the issue of style and voice in the context of the body of work. You will choose your own focus and work deeply into it for the whole five days. Learn how deep focus allows you more freedom to explore, not less. Leave the workshop with a body of work in progress, and a broader appreciation of your own creative capacity.
