02 Experimentation, drawing and painting with ink with David Middlebrook

With an introduction to mark making, composition and tonal exploration using brush, dip pen, ink and water, you will develop your skills allowing you to be able to look and draw, exploring elements of conceptual reasons for creating art. You will work in small and large drawing books over the week and while your works may or may not be completed, you will obtain the skills to continue your pursuit of art making.
David Middlebrook’s work explores Australian landscape and current political philosophy. He has an extensive exhibition history, including his most recent exhibition in Ningbo Museum of Art, China where he had a major solo exhibition of 28 large-scale ink drawings on canvas. With a PhD in Australian Art History, David is also a sessional lecturer and post-grad supervisor for students at University of Newcastle. http://www.davidmiddlebrook.com.au/

"It is not a narrative laid over the land that Middlebrook gives us. Rather, it is a sense that the earth, this ancient earth, has its own geological narrative and that, in comparison, ours is rather insignificant." – Dr Angela Philp, Lecturer, Art History and Theory, University of Newcastle
