Memory as Muse

Working from memory can be a fascinating catalyst for creating images that tap into the layered remnants of our past. It takes us beyond the seduction of details inherent to working from observation and liberates us to let go of habitual ways of image making. It can also be a bridge to abstraction. Drawings born from memory are often more simplified and allow the essential experience of the past to arise. Meditative, experimental drawing and journaling exercises will connect us with recent and more distant memories to use as compelling source material for our work.  Process-based exercises exploring layering, fluidity, temporality, trust and sensory connection will be offered. All levels of experience are welcome.
