About this event

The Contemporary Figure – Painting from Life

with Mathew Lynn

Saturday 27 November 10am - 3pm

$120 including materials and light lunch

Join Mathew Lynn in an exploration of the contemporary figure inhabiting a contemporary sense of space and place.

Working in reference to a life model, Mathew will help guide you through a process of intuition, exploration and painting techniques, completing a process of studies capturing the figure or portrait. Working from these studies with the life model present, there will be opportunity to create a larger more detailed painting. Mathew will devote time to each participant catering tuition according to individual needs.

A canvas board size 20”x 16” will be provided along with paper and acrylic painting materials.

About the Artist

Mathew Lynn lives and works between Sydney and the Blue Mountains. For over twenty years he has been one of Australia’s best known and successful portrait artists. His practice now focuses primarily on contemporary representations of the figure, the phenomenon of personhood, racial structures in society and the nature of phenomena as meditative experience.

Since obtaining his master’s degree in art from the University of New South Wales in 1996, he has been a finalist in the Archibald Prize seventeen times, including this year. He has twice been Archibald runner-up, and won the People’s Choice Award in 1997 and the Packers’ Prize in 2013. In 2010 he won the Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award, in which he has been a finalist five times. He has also been a finalist in the Wynne and Sulman Prizes, Doug Moran National Portrait Prize, the Dobell Prize for Drawing, Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award, Adelaide Perry Prize for Drawing and the Kedumba Collection of Australian Drawings.

Mathew Lynn is representation by Nanda\Hobbs, Sydney.
