Meet your Tutor

Meet Cordula Kagemann

My art reflects my life in an abstract way and is my way of expressing what I am not able to vocalize.

Living in an old house in the countryside for the past thirteen years has influenced my art. Being surrounded by nature and observing its constant change has shifted the focus of my art making toward exploring the themes of time and transience.

I create my work in solitude and lose myself completely in the process letting the image find its path and just let the magic happen. I am fascinated by the materiality of papers and of the possibilities and textures that develop in the process of creating.

Using my own experiences and sometimes my own photos as a starting point I aim to bring the image into universalization by abstraction. The images symbolize the process of life, the gathering of experiences and impressions, the ageing, the remembering and forgetting as well as everything cyclic in nature that is often represented by the use of the shape of the circle in my work.

I look forward to sharing my process and techniques with you in my signature online class Process & Possibilities.

Module 4
Abstracting Your Inspiration

Learning to see differently and extract the essence of a place, photograph or found object is the gift that abstract artists possess. Here you’ll learn Cordula’s freestyle cutting method to recreate stylised representations by noticing the negative spaces and endless inspiration that nature provides.

Module 5
Layered Collage - Project 1

Working from a blank round canvas, Cordula completes a finished artwork. From preparing and glazing the canvas, building up the layers you’ll learn how to incorporate acrylic paint and combine the previous elements created throughout the course to create depth and connection. Learning the finishing touches will be a turning point for pulling your elements together to unify your artwork.

Module 6
Textiles In Collage

It’s time to pull out your textile remnants and sewing machine and create a textile collage sheet and stitched collage elements that you’ll later use to embed into your artwork. This module is fun and exciting as you learn to let go of expectations and have some fun with acrylic paint and materials.

Module 7
Low Relief Collage - Project 2

Looking deeper at your creative influences and composition Cordula begins to incorporate textures into low relief deep frame canvases. Beginning with a canvas overview and wrapping technique to embedding paper rolls and fabric, you have the opportunity to further explore paper cuts on heavyweight paper to enhance the haptic nature of your compositions.
