Clive Knights

Clive Knights

Clive Knights will share images of some of his collages, prints, and publications, and will tell us a bit about himself and his artistic journey. He will then lead a workshop titled Depth Chamber: Inhabiting New Worlds Through the “Augmented Collage Spatial Study.” Participants will be introduced to a mode of creative practice that conjures new, imaginary, spatial worlds from found image fragments rich in material surface, light and shadow, perspectival depth, and human character. The workshop will use a roundtable process that rotates collages through seven collaborative stages whereby new extemporary additions are added to each work as they pass through the imagination and collage input of each participant. Please bring your own scissors (BYOS!), but glue sticks and all other materials will be supplied. Don’t miss this chance to collaborate with other NWCS members and to bring forth into visibility imaginary spaces and invented chambers that would be impossible to conceive without this process.
