Tony Blair ('Photo Op')
These intimate art weekends enable you to explore, develop and improve your creativity. Working alongside leading artists and photographers, take inspiration from the Gallery and look at portraiture in new, exciting ways. Class numbers are limited to 12. All materials are provided.
Spend two days working alongside kennardphillips, political artists Peter Kennard and Cat Phillips, to construct/deconstruct the portrait using paint, collage, montage, photography and other materials. You will use a sitter as symbolic of a subject - ranging from the prime minister to the film star to the self-portrait - and go beyond the surface image using methods that can incorporate critique and direct referential content into the image. The National Portrait Gallery Collection will be available for reproduction as A3 prints to work from and makers can browse the Collection online to choose a subject ahead of the workshop, or bring photographs / scanned images of subjects you would like to address. All other materials are provided.
kennardphillipps is a collaboration between Peter Kennard and Cat Phillipps who have been working together since 2002 to produce art in response to the invasion of Iraq. It has evolved to confront power and war across the globe. The work is made for the street, the gallery, the web, newspapers and magazines, and to lead workshops that develop peoples’ skills and help them express their thoughts on what’s happening in the world through visual means. The work is made as a critical tool that connects to international movements for social and political change.
