4 Day Art Retreat
at Conscious Earth, Algarve, Portugal
Facilitated by Jill Stott, you will be lead into a time and space for you to open up to beautiful surroundings, working with things, spaces, ourselves, each other, and the nude.
We'll learn what going into right brain mode means, discovering how different ways of seeing affect the process of the work.
This will be an intensive exploration retreat where we will put our attention on enquiry, seeing and the fascinating process of drawing fast and drawing slow.
An artistic mindfulness arises, dampening the mental chatter and opening an intimate dialogue with all that swirls around us.
Born in Lancashire , England 1959, I studied at Norwich School of Art, England. I graduated in 1981, receiving a BA with Honours in Graphic Design and Photography.
My acutely observed drawings, paintings and photographs show an intimate concern for abstract form, ambiguous space games, rhythmic composition and sensual light.
I am motivated by observations of chance meetings of stuff. That stuff can be anything...a field, a shed, a shoe, a figure, a sign, a ray of light. Sometimes by a small movement of the head, a juxtaposition, igniting and becoming meaningful.
I’m also interested in drawing people in habitual unconsciously adopted positions and I love teaching drawing.
