About Glen Skein
Having relocated from Mackay to Brisbane in 2007 to complete both his Masters and doctorate of Visula Arts, glen has gained a national profile as an experienced teacher and has maintained his art practice as an exhibiting artist for almost 3 decades. His studio practice embraces a mix of limited-edition artists’ books and traditional printmaking with elements of collage, found objects and assemblage.
In this workshop participants will explore the versatile image and mark making qualities of several printmaking methods that will be formulated into a series of original print works and an artists’ book. Using the garment of the fragment of a garment, participants will explore notions of memory and narrative. Glen Skein will demonstrate experimental approaches in monotype, photographic transfer and dry-point etching methods in combination with collage techniques. Through an experimental engagement with the process, students outcomes will focus on creating a series of original prints presented in book form.
Students are asked to come prepared with their own resource material of a garment or fragment of cloth that will be used to explore printmaking techniques. (Please note: the garment will be inked and passed through a press)
