Abstraction as Discovery: WORKING ON PAPER
An In-Studio 6-week Course.
Using a non-achievement oriented practice, we will investigate the possibility of a dialogue between our inner lives and the life of the image. We will be working with basic questions of abstraction and how to experiment with formal elements such as composition, line, shape, mark, edge and value as a way of EXPLORING NEW TERRITORY. We will be working in a mostly limited palette of black and white in various media on paper; charcoal, ink, ink wash, white and black conte, acrylic, gouache or casein. Previous experience in abstraction not necessary. Directness, spontaneity, risk and play will be encouraged.Materials
