David Buchanan will introduce Form for this months theme on Thursday 7th July from 7pm at Stills.
This month’s theme is Form. I will explore Form through the work of sculptors (such as Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore), painters (e.g. Alison Watt) and photographers: Edward Weston, Lucien Clergue, and others.
In preparing your own work for the theme you may wish to be guided by these quotations:
Wikipedia: Form is the shape, visual appearance, constitution or configuration of an object. In a wider sense, the form is the way something is or happens.
Paul Hill: Form, in photography, refers to the arrangement or ‘gestures’ of shapes made by the tones, not necessarily by the objects photographed.
Paul Hill: There could be as much grandeur in a photograph of forms made by the light and shade on the back wall of your house as there is in the picture of a distant mountain range.
But, don’t feel limited by them.
Please donate £3 directly to Stills on the night to help them maintain the gallery.
