Paintings in Glass—Glass Mosaic Workshop [FULL]

Date:  22 Jul 2023 - 27 Aug 2023

Venue: Workshop Room, G/F, Fung Ping Shan Building, UMAG, HKU, 90 Bonham Road, Pokfulam

Organised in conjunction with the exhibition Pablo Picasso: Paintings in Glass, this workshop will introduce the techniques of assembling and layering glass mosaics into pictorial depictions on a light box. Drawing inspiration from the gemmaux glass panels on display, participants will delve into the captivating effects of light on glass as they craft their own glass mosaic. They will also discover the material’s potential in reinterpreting the vivid brushstrokes and colour palette reminiscent of Pablo Picasso’s paintings.


Instructor: Virginia Kwok 

Virginia’s use of colour and light as her primary medium and her experimentation with various materials to play with light and shadow distinguishes her as an innovative artist. She served as the personal assistant to the renowned Colombian artist, Mr. Fernando Botero, during his time in Asia. This experience provided her with valuable insights into the art world and was a catalyst for her passion for creating.
