In 'The dance of the wild women: The Maenads’  Payne invites us to contemplate how little we humans have actually changed over the millennia by evoking the emotions, movement and sounds of an ancient Greek festival of drink, dance & ecstasy celebrating Dionysus: God of wine.

 Of Love, Desire and the Gods is an exhibition of paintings, drawings and prints by Richard Payne.

After years of reflection and work Payne draws on his classical training, sacred geometry and a modernist vocabulary to offer us an excitingly fresh and uniquely uplifting art with intellect, emotion and aesthetic order.

Using energy, colour, movement and his gift for narrative Payne sheds fresh light on universal beauty through mythology, revitalizing the messages for our modern times.  This advice from our ancient selves reminds us of our humanity, our place in the cosmos and if we listen, may even save us from ourselves.

Gavin Fry will open the exhibition and give an address.

Art author, artist and museum professional, Gavin Fry is the author of twenty-three books on Australian art and history.

David McCubbin, artist, will give an address.

MASTERCLASS PERSPECTIVE FOR THE ACADEMY ARTIST 2015,

Florence Academy METRO New York, USA

16 -17 May 2015

Perspective is the guide and the gateway; and without this nothing can be done well in the matter of drawing. Leonardo da Vinci

This 2-Day Perspective Master-class Workshop is an introduction to the topic designed specifically for the Academy artist with a focus on teaching you what the Renaissance artists in Florence protected as ‘secret knowledge’. We demystify its complexity and link perspective to the Academic sight-size method of drawing.

Perspective impacts everything we see or draw both in the studio and ‘plein air’.

We aim to make perspective a practical tool helping you solve problems with the human figure, relating multiple figures and placing the figure in a realistic environment.

There is no maths or complicated geometric set-up as an Architect might utilize, this work shop is for artists. We logically develop; 1. What is perspective? 2. How does it impact every realist artwork? 3. How can you control/use it in your artwork?

The relaxed, interactive and casual sessions combine theory and practical drawing from a live model. We cover; the principles & laws of perspective, step-by-step procedures showing how to use 1-Point and 2-Point Perspective, the impact of 3-point perspective, the Station Point, Horizon Line, Centre Line of Vision, Cone of Vision, Picture Plane, etc.

This master-class will open the door to a new world for the classical realist artist.

Instructor: Richard Payne

Workshop times: 16th May & 17th May 2015, 9am – 4pm

Bookings: Jordan Sokol (FAA METRO New York USA)
