Sacred Geometry Drawing Workshop
~ Gothic Revival At Bodalla Anglican Church ~
Saturday 23rd March
1000 ~ 1600
A practical and theory-based Introduction to Geometry & Sacred Art
exploring our relationship with nature, the cosmos, human creativity & potential.
Students will draw upon the Geometric construction
of the main Rose and Biomorphic Ornamental Motifs
of the Front Facade of The Bodalla Anglican Gothic Revival Church.
Gothic Revival Architecture, a style also referred to as Victorian Gothic,
( neo-Gothic, or Gothic ) which began in the late 1840s in England.
The movement gained momentum and expanded in the first half of the 19th century
and draws upon features of medieval examples, including decorative patterns,
finials, lancet windows, and hood moulds.
Drawing geometric patterns offer a unique portal into understanding our imperishable relationship with nature, the cosmos, human creativity and potential.
We have an intrinsic understanding and affiliation to symmetry and pattern.
By opening my mind’s eye to the profound sensitivities of Sacred Art and Architecture
around the world, one may peace in search of divine life.
What is Biomorphic Art ?
Derived from the greek word 'Bios' meaning LIFE & 'Morphe' meaning form
~ Biomorphic art portrays vegetal, organic forms found in nature
from plants to the human form.
In this workshop we will explore common Leaf patterns
found using encircled and peripheral lines to create aesthetic harmony
and illustrate evolutionary concepts.
