Ilaria Rosselli del Turco - The Unusual Still-Life (Online); Mondays, October 4-25, 2021

Date: Mondays, October 4-25, 2021
Time:  9:30 AM-12:00 PM Pacific Standard Time (12:30-3:00 PM Eastern Time)
Level: All
Medium: Oils

In this four-week online course, we will discuss about how to source and arrange objects for a still life in an original but meaningful way.Special consideration will be given to composition both within its elusive rules and counterintuitive solutions.  Our attention to “objects” will also be on the object-painting, as in making our canvas into an object that is evocative but also present in reality through its interesting surface. Students will be encouraged to produce a number of paintings in different formats. Although I will be demoing in oils, the course is open to students working in other mediums.

Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco is an Italian painter and printmaker. She trained as an illustrator in Italy but soon turned to fine arts, learning to paint in oils from part time courses, after she moved to London in 1999.

Her work has been selected for all major figurative painting prizes in London, such as the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery, the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy, the Threadneedle Prize, the Lynn Painter Stainer’s Prize, and is held in private collections in Europe, the US and Hong Kong, as well as in the collection of the Getty Research Institute in LA and the British Library.
