Developing Space with Brush Stroke, Color and Gesture
Investigate abstraction through building painted surfaces on canvas in this workshop for intermediate to advanced painters. Abstraction is approached as an alteration of reality and representational form rather than as non-objection—being inspired by the world around us when creating compositions. Emphasis is placed on inventive color choices made through a color-intuitive sense of palette generated from color and spatial relationships. Mark-making is explored while considering the connections between accident and intention, between chance and decision making. Students work flat as well as on the wall in order to change perspectives while painting.
