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 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.

Alfredo Quintana Garay

Collage digita Tintorera

The collages by Alfredo Quintana Garay (1974), Tintorera, are debtors of Dadaism and Surrealism, as well as the romantic spirit of the nineteenth century, all of this agitated with the pop culture consumed over the years. Alfredo started making collage in the 90s, when he was studying Communication Sciences in Mexico. Originally, he worked in a traditional way, cutting and pasting images of different bibliographic findings. In 2001 he published the poetry plaquette Primavera de carroñas that he illustrated with collages; at the same time he began to assemble objects in the tradition of artists such as Joseph Cornell. Since 2013, after a period dedicated to the publication of a magazine, he took up the artisan collage and decided to experiment with digital. The reading of Poesía y fin de siglo and El arco y la lira, by Octavio Paz, led a young Quintana Garay to discover the surrealists and other determining poets for his vision of the world. Artists such as the Czech Jindřich Štyrský, René Magritte, the Dadaist Hannah Höch and Max Ernst have been permanent influences, as well as the music of Nurse With Wound and Pérez Prado. The –convulsive– beauty, chance and dreams are preponderant themes in his collages. In the same way, love and insomnia complement the daily torments that nourish the work of Tintorera. Among his future challenges is learning to apply painting, drawing and other materials in his collages, as well as giving more workshops in San Miguel de Allende, CDMX and Spain! For now, Alfredo works on two books of poems illustrated with collage, The Nine Muses of the Apocalypse and ABCDelirio. The first is a tribute to women inspired by actresses like Hedy Lamarr and Winona Ryder. The second is an alphabet with collage –accompanied by a poem for each letter– using words that begin with the letter in question. The collages of Tintorera have been published in magazines such as Tapas (Spain), Esquire Mexico and Latin America, Mens Health en Español and Forbes (Spain).

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.
