I’ve spent the day looking through various photo albums on my iPad in preparation for a workshop tomorrow. It has made me so so so excited about “Immersion in Abstract Painting” by Anna Miller at the Cultural Center of Ponte Vedra. She suggested for us to gather names of abstract artist whom whose work we enjoy and to bring examples. For me this starts at JW Turner, then to some Bahaus members like Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee, as well as Odilon Redona, Dali and Frantisek Kupka. After that many from the 1950s-80s. Sonia Delaunay, Richard Diebenkorn, Arther Dove, Hans Hoffman, David Hockney, Judy Chicago, Georgia O’keefe, Richard Rauschenberg, Mark Rothko. As for current artists… sadly I have a gap in my knowledge from the 90s – now. I do love Joan Fullerton, Nancy Eckels, and Carole Frye and others whose work I have pinned, but whose names I have not retained.
I have taken a workshop from Anna before and she is an excellent teacher. My ability with abstracts was much improved after it. I look forward to expanding and further honing those skills in this workshop.
