The Architecture of Color
The way a painter uses color can be akin to the organic process of thinking. This workshop is for artists who use color as a way of navigating their material world. With an emphasis on the metaphorical, conceptual and even the poetic, this workshop is open to traditional painters as well as those in expanded media, including collage, installation, sculpture or performance. Topics are explored through informal critiques, one-on-one studio visits and group discussions informed by independent studio time. Artists should be able to work independently in the studio and ready to engage in active and open dialogue with other participants.
