Event description

Description

Junior Investigative Plant Morphology Drawing Workshop

Using a pencil, watercolours and a magnifying glass we will examine and draw from a collection of fascinating native Australian flowers and seed pods. As we dissect and draw these structures we will discuss the evolution of flower shapes and structures. We will use our imaginations to draw the pollinators attracted to these flowers.

The artworks will be drawn on postcard sized and weighted papers to take home.



Meet the Artist

Freedom Wilson is a visual artist who’s printmaking practice is shaped on location with investigative drawings researching the ecological complexities of wild New South Wales landscapes, with a focus on threatened orchid species.

Wilsons works with the textures of papers and linens in her printmaking practice which is informed by both a love of the natural environment and a love of drawing.

By hiking to remote locations with a pencil and paper and magnifying the small, wonderous morphology of plant communities her work intersects contemporary printmaking and ecological research.

Both habitat drawings and detailed plant survey drawings create a foundation for her artwork. Screen printing film is prepared, painted up and scratched back as a reduction process back at her Blue Mountains studio. Layered plants in her silkscreen prints and monotypes most often happen with a combination of translucent and opaque ink, creating depth within a landscape or a plant portrait.
