    "Landscape and Architecture: Abstract Experiments with Pigment Sticks, Oil Paint, Cold Wax and Paper"

    Landscape and our relationship to it is a powerful theme in contemporary abstraction. Inspired by the land and our human interactions with it, workshop participants will use beautiful materials to focus on color and placement of abstract elements in order to express powerful thematic ideas. We’ll blend and combine soft pigment sticks with oil paint, wax and other mediums. Working on paper provides options not available on other surfaces while allowing flexibility and permission to break new ground. Economical and effective presentation ideas for finished work will be demonstrated. Open your imagination and come ready to explore and enhance your own artwork with “strategies to create miracles.”

    Sara Post is a life long professional artist. She first gained national prominence for herartwork through her ceramic wall installations—paintings in clay—which formed the basis for her continuing interest in exploring layered surfaces. Her current work includes oil based mixed media paintings and paint based collage. She is a graduate of the University of Northern Arizona’s ceramics program with a master’s degree in studio artand art education. Sara Post lives and works in Davis, California, maintaining a studio and classroom space at Art 26 in downtown Davis.

    Artist Statement: I’m concerned with what it is to be present in the world— with exploring experiences of the extraordinary invention and majesty of nature as well as realities of the structure and limits involved in being human—all come together, layer upon layer. Contradictions abound. I try to work it out with lines, shapes and colors, using the language of abstraction.
