This month’s Family Studio Workshop takes inspiration from Mary Heilmann’s monumental mural ‘Pacific Ocean,’ directly across the gallery’s onsite restaurant, Manuela. Participants will combine watercolor paint and tape to make their own miniature murals that represent a feeling associated with Los Angeles. Finished projects will echo themes represented in Heilmann’s site-specific work, like the movement of water and California surf culture. The workshop will be led by Matt MacFarland.
About Mary Heilmann
Influenced by 1960s counterculture, the free speech movement, and the surf ethos of her native California, Mary Heilmann ranks amongst the most influential abstract painters of her generation. Considered one of the preeminent contemporary Abstract painters, Heilmann’s practice overlays the analytical geometries of Minimalism with the spontaneous ethos of the Beat Generation, and are always distinguishable by their often unorthodox – always joyful – approach to color and form.
