Painting has always entailed artists establishing a particular link between thinking, seeing and making. This course explores a variety of possible “equations” that could lead to a painting. The course will emphasize working in series, the development of a painting language to articulate your thoughts on your own work and that of others, color experience, process, materials, and authorship.
Students will experiment with different media and approaches: direct observation, abstraction, the integration of digital images, and post-digital imagery. Towards this goal, the projects in this course are focused on providing broad frameworks for your explorations while leaving the content to your discretion.
Lectures, critiques, studio visits, and assignments with readings are combined with studio practice.
