Join exhibiting artist Jacqueline Elley in a workshop based on her current exhibition Luxoplasts.
Familiar to Gallery audiences, Elley works in several mediums including drawing, painting, light boxes and installation.
Inspired by microscopic marine life, Elley’s biomorphic light drawings emanate from a dark and unseen world that reflects both the natural and man-made detritus polluting the environment.
Come and explore the merging of science and art through the microscopic world of our local waterways with Marine Biologist Dr Emily Roberts and Artist Jacqueline Elley. In this workshop you will make a work of art that makes the unseen visible. With references to Earnst Haeckel and Victorian Diatom Slides and viewing local water samples teeming with microscopic life, we will find inspiration to make contemporary botanical drawings of microorganisms.
A variety of materials will be available to use including paints, fibre optics and found plastics, to create white on black luxoplast light forms that emerge out of the darkness.
