Real Layers: Collage and the Image Transfer Process
November 8, 2021 @ 6:30 pm
Image transfer provides artists with the option to create photographic images without the use of a camera. In her talk, artist Blythe King shares the process of transforming copies of photographs, as well as copies of drawings, images, and text from magazines and books, into transparent layers within collage and painting. Spectators will see a variety of methods of using safe, non-toxic adhesives to manually transfer images, with a focus on visual narrative, contrast, composition, and repurposing materials.
Artist Blythe King’s collage portraits have been featured in exhibitions nationwide, including the New Waves 2017 show at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Trending: Contemporary Art Now! show for the 2016 National Women’s Caucus for Art Conference in Washington D.C. She currently lives and works in Richmond as an artist, art educator, and professor of religious studies.
This program is a part of the Centuries of Art series, brought to you in partnership by Williamsburg Regional Library, the Williamsburg Contemporary Art Center, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
