BRIDGING the gap between art and architecture is graphic designer and illustrator, Mathilda Della Torre, in the city for a two-day workshop, “India through My Eyes, Your Eyes, Our Eyes”.
Organised by the Chandigarh Lalit Kala Akademi at the Chandigarh College of Architecture, the aim of the interaction is to generate an interest in the fields of art and design, with Torre interacting with the students and sharing her own work with audio-visual presentations.
As a part of the workshop, shared Toree, she hopes to provide the students associated with creative fields like architecture and interior design a new perspective on art and the various techniques currently in use in the fields of illustration art and graphic designing.
“This endeavour shall help the participants to explore an entirely different field and incorporate their learnings in their own fields, namely architecture, art and design,” added London-based Torre.
A part of the workshop, one of the sessions focused on photography, with Toree showcasing the work of various photographers, including her own, followed by an absorbing interpretation of these works by the students and participants.
Torre sais she conceptualised her art, be it her paintings, graphics and illustrations as a tool to visually communicate a mood, an atmosphere or an intention.
Architecture, art history, nature, human behaviour, her exploration leads to many new experiences and creative efforts, which Torre loves to share.
The tone of the workshop is experimental and exploratory, with Torre striving to make students think for themselves and get in touch with a new way of designing and mixing art with architecture.
