Description

Join internationally acclaimed sculptor Sergei Isupov for FIGURE – GROUND: Illustrated Sculpture, a week-long intensive workshop exploring the sculpted form in clay, the painted surface, and development of a personal narrative. At Project Art, in rural Massachusetts, the workshop will combine hands-on active studio work with demonstrations, one-on-one instruction from Isupov, and illustrated lectures by Isupov and gallerist, Leslie Ferrin. Enjoy optional field trips to area museums, select studios, and nearby natural settings.

In the workshop, Isupov will lead students through the techniques of slab construction, underglaze painting, and glaze application with the goal of completing several sculptures. Students will use studio space in Project Art, a renovated 19th century Mill on the banks of the Westfield River. Find out more about Project Art at projectart01026.com.

Sergei Isupov lives and works in Cummington, Massachusetts with his wife, Kadri, and daughter, Roosi. Working full-time as an artist, he has a long, international resume with works included in numerous public collections and important exhibitions. His work is featured in multiple books, catalogs, and magazines, and also shared via workshops and lectures at museums, universities and art centers.

Isupov is known for his highly-detailed narrative, ceramic sculptures, which feature completely illustrated- part tattoo, part in-the-round paintings. Isupov continues to explore opposites as themes in his work. Emotional exchanges between men and women allude to romance, an affair, or simply mystery. Our own imaginations are asked to fill in and finish the narrative using personal associations.

Students of all levels are welcome.
