MASH-UP – FIGURATIVE PAINTING
The Factory workshops always focus on different techniques so that you can learn about them and experiment with them. This workshop is about figurative painting. As a basis, we will use a relief printing technique that works similarly to monotype, yet achieves completely different effects. It exploits the adhesive power of acrylic paints.
For this we ask you to bring a photograph with a motif that you would like to paint. It doesn’t have to be a high quality print, a home printed photo will suffice for our purposes. It should be as large as the format you want for your painting. Based on the print, we will work with acrylic paints and discover painterly units. Among other things, we will explore how to set the scene for a figure and how to mix a wide variety of skin colors.
The workshop will be run by artist Lina Zylla. Her artistic practice focuses on the manipulation of reality and revolves around how it is triggered and preserved. In her installations and performances, she responds in painting and visually-acoustically to the spaces at hand. After studying art history at Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, Lina Zylla studied painting and sculpture under Günther Förg and Florian Pumhösl, and received her diploma in art at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich as a master student in 2019.
