preSEED

6th -18th Jan 2022

10 am to 4 pm 

Studio Forrest 

We are a group of ten artists who have been focused on the theme of seed throughout 2021. Studio Forrest offers an opportunity for artists and creatives to expand on this theme through individual and collaborative artworks. Our weekly sessions are peer led and provide a space to explore and extend different mediums and processes in a supportive encouraging environment.

 

This year we have worked on sculptures with seeds and wire, encaustic forms, pastel, portraiture using seeds, and created artworks which explore the relationships of ourselves to seeds and memory.

 

Works are inspired by but not dictated to by the theme. We promote the cohesion of our group via collaborative works and exhibitions. Personal interpretation and exploration within the theme is encouraged.Through the group exloring themes and ideas the work of individual artists is enhanced expanded or "Seeded".
