Drawing with Scissors, lessons from Matisse.
‘He said he was drawing with scissors, cutting directly into colour, abolishing the conflicts – between colour and line’
Access students channelled their inner Matisse in life drawing this week, with amazing results!
Students quickly drew with scissors working directly into coloured paper to create figures which have all the lively, direct and robust qualities found in Matisse’s beautiful cut out figures.
The students utilised rhythmic lines, forms which echo forms, sinuous arabesque curves, fluid shapes and negative spaces to imply and build structure.
“Cutting directly into color reminds me of a sculptor’s carving into stone.” (Henri Matisse)
