Alternative Applications Using High Flow Acrylics with Dana Cromie
March 15, 2020
Sunday, March 15 11:30AM – 1:00PM
Sunday, March 15 2:00 – 3:30PM
Dana will share some of his techniques for applying pattern and colour in his woven paintings. High-Flow Acrylic paint is used with Indian printing blocks, rubber stamps, plants from his garden, and other tools that offer textures and patterns not easily available with a brush. Dana will also demonstrate his masking process for rendering the North Shore mountains. Participants will leave with their eyes open for patterning alternatives to compliment their current practices.
Dana Cromie is a life-long artist born in Vancouver. His current work explores the disconnected layers of modern life by weaving vertical strips of basic landscape elements with horizontal strips of Venetian blinds which activate the viewer. Cromie also ‘paints’ with his iPad and in more traditional formats. He was Artist in Residence at UBC Botanical Garden in 2012-2014 and created a solo exhibit for UBC’s Beaty Biodiversity Museum in 2014. One of Cromie’s 2020 projects is a large scroll painting of Mumbai Harbour.
