A two-day workshop at the Saatchi Gallery with British artist Alice Morey. Processing Materials
focusses on painting as a material process, concentrating on the physicality of paintings and paint itself- controlling mark making, manipulating materials, layering surfaces and peeling them off. During the workshop participants will have the opportunity to engage with unconventional painting materials such as latex and silicone, as well as learn how to make their own pigments, dye canvas with organic materials and experiment with different tools.
Alice Morey is a South London-born artist based in Berlin. She studied at Camberwell College of Arts and University of Brighton before moving to Berlin in 2009. Her work breaks down boundaries of traditional methods of painting by using chemical experiments and through creating her own rituals in material processes- leading to large format paintings. Her methods often combine categorisations of objects, painting and performance, and her materials range from clay, home-made charcoal, natural pigments and hydrochloric acid. There is a strong sense of rhythm, poetry and playfulness to her mark making.
The artist asks each participant to bring an old toothbrush and a vegetable of their favourite colour.
