Inspired By Käthe

3 May
WAA exhibit

My three-dimensional form made from cut and stitched Shiohara paper, with hand writing and Kathe Kollwitz stamps developed from an original screenprint.

 

In June, I will be running a two – day masterclass at the Glynn Vivian art gallery, linked to their excellent Kathe Kollwitz exhibition.  Exploring her life and political activism through her drawings and printmaking, I will be covering two techniques, drypoint and woodcut, drawing inspiration directly from her magnificent work and using the exhibition as a catalyst to create small editions over the weekend.

A digital drawing I did based on Kathe’s woodcut, The Widow.

 

I love Käthe’s work, I have admired her for decades, I’m so chuffed that she has her own exhibition in my local gallery.

    I wish I lived closer! It’s always great to have a presenter or teacher who is passionate about the material, like you are with Kollwitz.

    Years ago at the Hirshhorn museum in Washington DC I was blown away by 3 bronzes of hers. Powerful stuff. I was only familiar with her drawings and prints before that.

      I saw some of her bronzes last year when I visited Berlin, wonderful. I want to try to see her war memorial bronzes in the German War Cemetery in Belgium. They are beautiful.
