November 10, 2019
Sunday, November 10 10:30AM – 12:00PM
Sunday, November 10 2:00PM – 3:30PM
Join Lynne Green as she demonstrates a method of making a plate and printing it in intaglio and relief on a thin Japanese paper – a method that can also be used on thin, closely woven fabric (cotton is the best). The primary focus will be a simplified method of printmaking that works well for those without access to a printmaking studio and how these prints can be used in different ways. Lynne will discuss and demonstrate some techniques, materials, (inks, paints, papers) and also supplies (tools and misc. items) that can be used for printmaking without a press. Learn about the use of water based inks and other products and methods that can be used on and with the finished prints.
“I’ve always been captivated by the every-changing quality of my environment. I interpret the essence of light merging into shadow. The use of 24K gold with multi-layered glazes of water and oil media communicates the rich fluidity of the scene. “
Lynne Green’s distinct mixed media painting evolve naturally from her many years of work as a jewellery designer. Her paintings are accented with 24K gold and, at times, with a variety of handcrafted pigments mixed with ground malachite, lapis lazuli and other semi-precious gems. She also makes use of many recycled items such as sterling silver, copper, brass, steel, rusted metal, wood, linen and silk, cotton fibers.
Having spent many years in North and West Vancouver, Green has long been fascinated by the natural forms of her landscape surroundings. Her work reflects this passion for natural forms. Currently, her paintings, sculpture, printmaking and commissioned work, take advantage of her knowledge of the subtleties of colour to evoke nature’s harmonious contours. Her work is in several corporate collections and has been collected by people from all over the world, including Australia, Europe, Hong Kong, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
