Colours of Loss Workshop (Pre-Recorded)
Meg Bullock is an artist drawn to human connection, the world around us and the strength of memories in objects, images, film, colours and our own minds.
Her work has an underlying theme relating to family, connectivity and loss. Using bright bold colours, playful shapes and childhood imagery Meg’s work often evokes a sense of joy and life into times past or loved ones lost. Through creating her own art she’s been able to express losses she’s experienced herself and created pieces that celebrate life - the fragility and beauty.
“I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn't say any other way” - Georgia O'Keeffe
Her two part workshop “Colours of Loss” is inspired by her 30 piece mixed media series titled “Colours of Childhood” in which she used old family photography, collaging, prophorsecent paint and a slide projector. Meg will share her own experiences of loss and how creativity helped her to process and express herself in a way she wasn’t even fully conscious of.
No drawing skills or official training in art is required, just you and some equipment. You will be encouraged to create your own work on something that holds importance to you* using collaging techniques, mark making, composition work and just getting in touch with your creative side and having fun!
Your object can be anything you wish that is easy to work with on paper. It could be old photographs of a loved one lost, a resignation letter from a pivotal job in your life, a doctor's note from an illness you’ve survived, a love letter from a past relationship or even a receipt from the first date.
