Alice Mumford

Alice’s paintings are characterised by lively and immediate surfaces. Vibrant colour is balanced and composition considered, but not forced. Strong abstract qualities within the negative space suggest intrigue. Soft edges shimmer, yet the object remains defined and tactile. The works have a dreamlike, almost ghostly quality to them as they evoke a connection with memories and past lives. The feeling of a moment interrupted.
Richard Selby, Director, The Redfern Gallery

“The school of painting is an oasis; a place to share ideas, enthusiasm and adventures into painting. Teaching has helped me to translate my thoughts and reflections about art into practical courses. In doing this I have learnt so much and shared in that adventure. It’s an opportunity to pass on the wonderful sense of being part of a bigger ‘family’
of painters.”

After Matisse 25/02/2019

£545

Alice Mumford will share with you a process of discovery and exploration, an approach developed for her own painting practice. Matisse transformed his studio into dreamy places, something like a stage set. Based on some of his renowned paintings we will recreate parts of Matisse's studio. By working from the same point of view as Matisse, discover how you too can activate space in your painting.

Bonnard and the Electric Light 13/05/2019

£545

To coincide with ‘Bonnard Colour of Memory’ at Tate Modern, Alice Mumford will take you on an exploration of light and shade. Learn how Bonnard harnessed the power of shadows. Often his subjects were lit by electric light, creating the equivalent of midday sunshine in the south of France. You will work from a variety of studio interiors lit in the same way.
