Trompe L'Oeil Workshop

Trompe L'Oeil Workshop + Exhibition

Mondays, Saturdays December 6 - December 20


Agenda: 

We are happy to announce our winter workshop. The genre of Trompe L’Oeil has its own place in the history of art. What is so special, what is so different about Trompe L’Oeil? What is its secret? The miracle of illusion, of course.

I think I finally understood why the most effective are very shallow still lifes where the brain does not pick up the difference between something totally flat and something that has very little depth. Here our stereoscopic vision stops working.

To create a complete illusion takes a lot of skill. A clumsy, rush job would not do.  “The good God is in the detail”.

You become the illusionist mesmerizing your spectators.

Here are some examples of the objects you can use:

  • Old photographs
  • Any mementos (theater tickets, etc.)
  • Postcards
  • Images of paintings, drawings
  • Books
  • Sheet music
  • Other small objects

We will start with thinking your concept through. It has to have a certain emotion. Then we will assemble it into a composition that you will paint.

We look forward to working with you on this project!
