Painting Sensation: Budapest

In this workshop we will focus on painting sensations as distinct from painting light or form. The paint stroke is not made to describe, illustrate, or please the eye. Rather, it goes directly onto the nervous system and constitutes a force that overwhelms our visual vocabulary and natural perception.

Exercises include combining forms into novel hybrids of sensations. We don’t want to copy or imitate what is given by reality and our perception but rather unearth and discern the forces within objects and render them visible.

Hours: 10AM-8PM with breaks.
The workshop will be in English.
The price is 10.000 forints. (8.000 for students)

We have only 10 available places for this workshop. Bring all preferable art supplies with you.
Also we are able to provide needed materials.

Suggested reading: Gilles Deleuze - "The Logic of Sensation"
To watch/Read: Francis Bacon interview with David Sylvester

Write us direct message to be registered for one-day workshop on 29th of February in Budapest.

See you all in TheStudio!

Painting Sensations - workshop

Painting Sensations: from Cezanne to Bacon.
Two-day practical workshop.

Day I: we explore visual art primarily as a felt sense. Taras will do a half-hour demo of Cezanne's concept of space. Then we will draw or paint, paying close attention to our present impulses and noticing any resistances in our actions. As each student has particular issues, Taras and William will address your process individually to help resolve blocks in expression.

Day II: William does a demo of Francis Bacon's technique, focusing on his concept of catastrophe. We will continue from day one with added attention to his sense of composition. This workshop is open to all levels of experience. For beginners, we will help you focus on developing an empathic response to your process. For intermediate artists who draw and paint, we will help you focus on developing your personal visual vocabulary.

Location: Paseo Yeserías, 47 Madrid 28005

Hours: 10-1PM break 2PM-8PM


The workshop will be in English.
The price is 70 euro.

Revision Realism

The old masters never copied nature but rather captured life in their depiction of the real. Realism for them was not justnarrative or objects but instead a toolbox of devices which modernism took and forgot to return.
