‘A two-day course to explore spontaneous mark making as a springboard for freestyle drawings and paintings.

Participants will be encouraged to invite the unpredictable side of making art and to step into an individual creative process, which unfolds like an open dialogue between oneself and what becomes in time a drawing/painting with an unexpected meaningfulness.

The approach supports individual ways of invention and expression, overcoming creative blocks and connecting stronger with own traces.

All tools and materials are provided for this course.

Marius von Brasch works in drawing, painting and digital video. He is fascinated by dynamics of psychological/visual transformations. His works reference frequently mythology and historical sources picking up these subjects.

He gained an MA in Fine Art Painting with Distinction and completed a practice-based PhD research in Fine Art, both at Winchester School of Art. He has also a background in Gestalt-Therapy. In 2013 he was awarded the Abbey Fellowship in Painting at The British School in Rome. Marius works from his studio in Rookley, Isle of Wight.’
