Painting: The Unseen
March 02, 2020
Painting: The Unseen takes a thematic approach to painting. In this course students work on an individualized body of work concentrating in oils, acrylics, watercolors, or encaustics through an exploration and interpretation of artistic practices and concepts that branch out from notions and symbols of ‘the unseen’, ‘the invisible’, ‘the spiritual’ and ‘the sublime’. The course will involve introductory readings, written reflections, critiques, video screenings and brief lectures, introducing the work and writings of artists like Wassily Kandinsky, Hilma af Klint, Agnes Martin, as well as contemporary expressions of ‘the unseen’ such as in the work of Bill Viola, Shahzia Sikander and James Turrell. Artist statements will be an important part of each painting project, demonstrating each student’s engagement with the course content.
