Shana & Robert ParkeHarrison
DATES: July 27 – August 7, 2015
SKILL LEVEL: III – IV
CONCEPT: Defining, sustaining and evolving an artistic vision are challenges for artists across the board. This workshop guides students in developing and defining the personal voice through intense discussion, focused reflection and honing photographic skills. We begin each day by examining the work of well-known artists and discussing their messages, why the work is important and what makes it uniquely theirs. There are opportunities for reflection, making images in the landscape and refining photographic skills. Students work individually with Shana and Robert to develop their personal photographic and conceptual messages.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students use digital SLR cameras, Adobe Lightroom and digital printmaking.
ACTIVITIES: We participate in daily one-on-one and group discussions, critiques, image making, hikes, studio time, and editing, developing and printing images.
FACULTY: Shana and Robert ParkeHarrison explore the triangular relationship of humans, technology and nature. They combine sculpture, painting, set design, performance, photography and implied narrative to create constructed, dreamlike images. Their works have been featured in numerous shows, including the “Mediations Biennale,” Poznan, Poland; “Fotografica Biennial,” Bogota, Colombia; “lille 3000,” Lille, France, and “Wall at WAM,” Worcester, MA. They are represented by Suzanne Tarasieve Gallery in Paris and Jack Shainman Gallery, NY. www.parkeharrison.com
