In this half day workshop with Louise Neiland we will be looking at how to use notebooks as a means of exploring an idea or concept. We will use still life as a starting point for ideas and mixed media pieces in the journals. We will look at the process of working and editing in notebooks and how journaling generates more ideas for finished works.
In her work Louis Neiland engages with the challenge of depicting the nebulous and intangible nature of time through the use of still images. She has exhibited in group exhibitions both nationally and internationally, and her work is represented in private and public collections including the OPW / State Art Collection, Rabo Bank, Dvblinia, Microsoft, IADT and Electric Ireland. Neiland studied at Camberwell College of Art and Design, London and the National College of Art and Design, Dublin from 1987 to 1991, and she completed an MA in Fine Art (Painting) at NCAD in 2008. Artist lives and works in Dublin.
