Photo Transfer: Image and Memory
with Keegan Luttrell
In this workshop we will explore the materials and various methods used to make successful image transfers. Image transfers have a beautiful, ethereal quality and can be used in a multitude of art applications.
We will learn several photo transferring techniques, including solvent, acrylic and transparency alcohol transfers. Exploring several ways to reproduce an image will allow participants to layer, collage and draw into their experiments. We will also take a look at how to transfer onto a variety of materials.
Additionally we will examine conceptual approaches to the idea of image replication in relation to the concept of memory. Through class discussions and examining artists whose work looks at personal and public notions of memory, memory as a trace, and memory in connection to place, participants will be inspired to incorporate new ways of thinking in combination with the introduced techniques.
Participants will leave with the knowledge to continue experimenting with image transfers in their own artwork as well as a conceptual framework to explore artistic notions of memory.
