Description

Aperture for Response: A Drawing Workshop with Artist Merryn Trevethan

Date: Saturday 24 June 2017, in conjunction with Gillman Barracks' Art Day Out!
Time: 3-5PM
Venue: Yeo Workshop, Gillman Barracks

In this exclusive drawing workshop, you will be encouraged to use your own perceptions as a lens through which to respond to the works in the 'Apertures' exhibition at Yeo Workshop. Using your sense of sight to examine the visible worlds created by the artists, you will be led through a series of observational drawing strategies by Artist Merryn Trevethan, to take a closer look at the forms and spaces in the exhibition.

If you have a favourite drawing medium (i.e. coloured pencils, pens, markers), feel free to bring it along for the workshop! Drawing materials (pencil and paper) will be provided.

No drawing experience needed!

This workshop is suitable for participants aged 16 and up.

About the Exhibition

Apertures is a group exhibition featuring the work of Mike HJ Chang, Merryn Trevethan, Xue Mu, and Filippo Sciascia in a presentation of contemporary artefacts, comprising painting, photography and sculpture, that come together to present conceptions of light and its role in visual perception. These artworks are indices of the contemporary experience, highlighting the lenses of perception that currently filter the everyday experience of individuals, and conceiving a narrative of light and luminance as that which informs and structures our senses of perception and experiences of the world.

About the Artist

Merryn Trevethan is an Australian artist based in Singapore. Her practice has focuses on our relationship to living in increasingly globalised cities, constantly in a state of flux. She uses her observations of the cityscape to tease out the uncertainty of perception and the complexity of vision.

Trevethan completed her Masters of Fine Art (by Research) at Monash University, Melbourne in 2005. Since then she has exhibited widely in Australia and also internationally. Trevethan recently held her first solo exhibition in Singapore at the Australian High Commission. She returns regularly to Australia to participate in solo and group exhibitions, public art projects and to teach workshops.
