We thought you’d like to see how much work went into producing David Fleck Workshop, which was held last night at The Museum After Hours event on Chambers Street, Edinburgh. It has been a while in the making and if you’ve been following this blog, you will have seen some of the progress. Above you can see david collecting research photographs a-top The National Museum of Scotland.
David chose to focus upon the skyline, and expertly paired the bustling view down into silhouette shapes. The final panorama is composed of 4 individual scenes. Eachcene was then carefully hand cut out of board and pin board materials. All cut by hand, by David Fleck in his Glasgow Studio.
Each scene was then carefully mounted into a frame, making it sturdy enough for our eager workshop participants to add embellishments to the final design.
David Fleck adds his own embellishment first though, creating an elegant foreground scene, with the backdrop waiting to be completed.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this rare look into an artist’s process. The final pieces will be on display in The National Museum of Scotland for about a month from today. If you can’t make it along, David Fleck’s work is available online for you to browse here and we will pop up some photos of the final pieces here next week. Thanks to David and The National Museum of Scotland for having us along last night.
