Join artist Jacqui Stockdale for a special skills-based Masterclass The Long Line, inspired by her exhibition The Long Shot currently showing at Linden New Art. Looking at the costumes and masks on display, you will learn to make line drawings of the fashion designs on a fold-out paper sculpture. Stockdale says that drawing in this way evokes the serendipitous way we experience the unfolding world around us.
This Masterclass will help you engage with the work as you observe the details that are often overlooked when walking through a gallery
space. It can be a meditative experience and helps you gain confidence in your drawing abilities. No drawing experience necessary.
'You will spend the day in the gallery getting to know every one of my whimsical characters in my new exhibition, The Long Shot and take
home a fold-out concertina sketch book of fabulous drawings"
- Jacqui Stockdale
The Long Shot is an exhibition of photographic portraits, collage and life size sculptural works. The artist's research and inspiration stems from clothing featured in Ned Kelly films, traditional clothing worn on the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations and burlesque costumes. The dresses, shoes, collars and buttons are original Victorian clothing combined with tailor made pieces from vintage linen and contemporary fashion. As well as a display of masks from Mexico, Guatemala and China, the artist has created original masks using human hair, horsehair, re-purposed animal fur and human teeth. A selection of costumes are also sourced from Rose Chong Costumiers in Fitzroy and featured in the large framed photographs from the series The Boho.
