Abstract Painting Workshop
„Fashion Textiles Collage“


In this 10-hours Abstract Painting Workshop you will learn the fundamental techniques of Collage Free Painting on canvas. Textiles and Fashion Material will be fixed on the canvas with glue. The canvas will be individually framed with a wooden framework during the course. Material such as Cloth, scraps of clothing, bonding agent, acrylic paint, oil pastel, ink and chalk. Will be utlised in my unique technique to bring collage and painting together on the canvas in this free painting art course. The textile material will be stuck on a canvas of circa 35 x 55 cm. Arcylic colours will then be painted on the canvas and textiles and spread out using a spatula. The short time it takes for the collage to dry allows for you to break away from the norms and regulations.Abstract figures will now become visible to the exterior eye as well as the interior. A form of communication will take shape. The object will then be slowly encircled on the canvas using a base colour. Withshades of colour and their harmony you will learn to transform abstract shapes into figures and faces. Your imagination enters the foreground. The stuck-together textiles form their own movement. The utilisation of acrylic colours rework and estrange the first impression of the painting and turn the object into a story. The objects on the canvas will then be connected using a line-technique.We will accompany you through thoughts, expressions and your individual vision.

Anke Carola Broeschen

Abstract & free painting, mosaic/Set designer

The artist Anke Carola Broeschen was employed as a Management Assistant in the Wholesale and Foreign Trade until 2009. This was followed by private tutoring in abstract and free painting from the stage designer (mentor) Andreas Szalla in Bochum, Germany, Zurich, Switzerland and at the Salzburg Festival between 2000 and 2007. In the summer of 2005, she travelled and held her first vernissage on the island of Menorca. The island promotes the creativity of the artist with its light and the intensive colours. Faces and figures carved in rock stimulate the imagination and additional impressive moments are to be discovered in nature, these then being transferred to canvas or paper.

The works of art of the artist Anke Carola Broeschen have now been produced on the Island of Menorca and nationally and internationally exhibited since 2009. The opening of the gallery in Mahón now makes it possible to exhibit works of art on Menorca.

The diversity and pastel coloured light in the sky and the ocean, the nature and the sea, combined with relaxation and serenity are what provide an enormous inspiration. Material that comes from the nature and the coast for example, are included in the collages, as are shards and ceramic included in the mosaics.

Sylvie Pras

Aquarelle/Water color paintings



Born in France, I studied advertising art there at a time when PC did not exist. I arrived in Menorca in 1982 and fell in love with the island, its light and its tranquility. Although I dedicate little time to drawing and watercolor for many years, I never gave up completely. I worked with Miguel Cao drawing with pen and china ink for his book "Flowers of Menorca", I made calligraphy works and some logotype, I took drawing classes with Marcel Villier, did watercolors for friends and acquaintances. Three years ago I signed up for illustrative drawing lessons with Yolanda Carretero and started again to fully enjoy recreating with simple lines and colours the beauty that surrounds me and that I still discover every day. I work from photos I usually take myself and that inspire me: portraits, landscapes, towns, houses. I won’t give up anymore with painting.

 

 

 

Phil Miller

Photography Collage Artworks

My artistic output focuses on documenting and celebrating the minutiae of everyday life through detailed and intricate photo-based collage work. Artworks aim to capture the ephemeral; vignettes of a place, time and location. Each collaged piece is the result of a complex process involving the marriage of original photographs, paint, multiple exposures and artwork using projections to form the final composition. Once layered, images take on a new, almost cinematic quality. Works have a real sense of movement and with time, reveal elements to the viewer that are not always obvious at a first glance. Found items, tickets, scraps of paper and luggage labels worked into each collage become points of reference for dating a piece and denoting its significance within a time and place.

Menorca as inspiration

Balearic islands as artwork interpretations

The island promotes the creativity of the represented artists with its light and the intensive colours. Faces and figures carved in rock stimulate the imagination and additional impressive moments are to be discovered in nature, these then being transferred to canvas or paper.

The diversity and pastel coloured light in the sky and the ocean, the nature and the sea, combined with relaxation and serenity are what provide an enormous inspiration.

The island of Menorca offers inspirations and ideas such as vibrant sunsets, the permanently changing colour of the ocean, from turquoise to emerald green and deep blue shades, and the sandy beaches and rocky limestone rocks.

Landscapes and figures

Inspiration for artists for decades

The artists who are represented by the Artist Studio & Gallery BROESCHEN are not the first generation to be inspired by the impressive landscape of the Balearic island. Art in all its forms already originated decades ago, when hippies and artists discovered the Balearic Islands (Menorca, Majorca and especially Ibiza).

Nowadays, the Gallery determines the free painting, abstract art and photography. We also create mosaics (in the tradition of the Spanish master Gaudí ), ceramic art and artworks using glass shards before offering them to all of the art aficionados in the world.

Let yourself be inspired and visit us on Menorca.
