Rosella Garavaglia: “Not on Paper”

March 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm



When approaching a passage, quotation or poem, calligraphers are faced with a number of questions, many in relation to the nature of the text and how to best express it visually. There are so many ways, many possibilities, but we know some are more appropriate than others. We start to explore techniques, different tools and materials following an idea or concept dictated by the nature of the text and guided by our understanding and emotional response. We always start on paper, with pencil, pen or brush, making doodles, sketches, notes… inevitably after a period of exploration we’ll reach some decisions on materials including which surface will best support the work, which one will be more suitable or interesting, paper may still be the answer or not…?!
