Event Details

This workshop connects with the Queensland Visual Art General Senior Syllabus. The poetics of process presents a collection of process driven visual arts workshops that allow the medium and the choice of materials to inform the conceptual intentions of each outcome. The outcomes for each workshop focus on enabling visual art students to recognise that their personal connection to a specific process and medium are intrinsically connected to their conceptual considerations. The poetic as opposed to the conceptual platform that underpins each workshop is a means of maintaining skill-based studio practices that allow students to develop their conceptual concerns through process driven outcomes.

Additional Information


Dr. Glen Skien is a North Queensland artist/printmaker who relocated to Brisbane in 2007 to complete both a masters and doctorate of visual arts. After 10 years of tutoring in printmaking and associate lecturer with Griffith University Queensland College of Art, his works are often a hybrid response of print, collage and artists’ book forms. Skien has recently developed a series of community-based workshops Material Thinking: The Poetics of Process that reinforce the intuitive and poetic associations that underpin the artist’s personal studio practice.
