Develop your painting skills on this two-day workshop with an exhibiting artist from the BP Portrait Award 2014., Eileen Hogan. You will explore Eileen’s approach to portraiture, investigating how the biography of the sitter can inform the work.
Eileen Hogan is an Artist and Researcher. She is a Professor in Fine Art in the CCW (Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon art schools) Graduate School, University of the Arts London. Since her extensive training at Camberwell School of Art, the Royal Academy Schools and the Royal College of Art, she has explored the way that stories underlie how we see. In 2013 Eileen was one of the five artists invited by Tate to teach a Life Drawing Masterclass, each from their own perspective and the resulting film demonstrates Eileen’s approach to the relationship between portraiture and biography. In 2013 Eileen had a two-year long touring exhibition of her cycle of paintings, drawings and prints inspired by Ian Hamilton Finlay’s garden Little Sparta, produced between 1997 and 2013. In 2013 it was shown at the NewArtCentre, Roche Court, Wiltshire and at the Fleming Collection London. In 2014, a section of the show is featured in ‘Of Green Leaf, Bird, and Flower: Artists’ Books and the Natural World’ at the Yale Center for British Art in the U.S. and there will be a solo show in the Autumn at the Stockwood Discovery Centre, part of Museums Luton. Eileen shows with Browse & Darby in London and is a Patron of Mindroom, a Scottish charity for children with learning disabilities. www.eileenhogan.co.uk
