Time: 2:00-3:30PM Pacific Time/5:00-6:30 PM Eastern Time/10:00-11:30 PM London Time

A transcription is an abbreviated Master Copy, a short study of a painting or master work used as a tool to study the paintings we most admire and help us with our own painting process. 

Join Gage Opdenbrouw as he shares the role transcriptions play in his own work and demonstrates his process for transcribing a painting, from analyzing composition to drawing, design, paint application, color, and cherry-picking all the best ideas found embodied in great art works.

“A deep thematic thread runs through all of my work, it’s a ‘vanitas’ sort of message, to take the time to be present, to notice the magic of noticing, the richness of what’s right in front of us. I think that there is something radical in making work that is intimate in scale and quiet in its content and its aims–it strikes me as a tonic, an antidote, for our times, which are increasingly dehumanized, and in which people are living lives that are increasingly disembodied, mediated by a screen, and constantly stimulated. My art is about connecting with this world, this moment, as it is, as deeply as possible.” www.gageopdenbrouw.com
