Collective Collage Inspired by Braque

Participants in a recent art workshop enjoyed a brief discussion about Georges Braque and the Cubist Still Life, 1928-1945 and lesson in cubist composition led by artists Ken Kewley and Jill Phillips. Each individual created a personal cubist collage and contributed to a group composition inspired by forms in Braque’s works.

In the workshop, participants study reproductions of Braque’s paintings and cut and paste their own abstract shapes onto small squares. Photos: Caitlin Brague

To practice the layered effect seen in cubist works, participants worked in small teams to make a group composition. Each person drew an abstract form onto transparency paper and layered it with another. After some deliberation, a final composition was agreed upon and scanned into a single image.
