Welcome to Beauty School. A workshop based around changing the perception of standardized beauty through the use of paint and contemporary art practices.
Jess Cochrane is a contemporary portrait artist based in Wollongong who’s work strongly reflects issues in modern society based around beauty and popular culture. In this workshop, each person will create a portrait based over a photograph using acrylic paint and collage techniques to create unique portraits based on one image.
At the end of the painting process, every portrait will be curated on a wall as part of a large-scale installation as a way of questioning the typical standards of beauty as well as embracing all of the different ways in which beauty can exist.
Jess Cochrane is an emerging artist based by the beach in Wollongong, NSW. When she isn’t drinking coffee or hanging out with her border collie, Buddy, she is creating large-scale contemporary portraits that reflect upon the consumption and the relationship between popular culture and beauty.
