INTERIORS: Making Space, Part Two
One essential and magical aspect of painting is conjuring the experience of space on a flat canvas. In this two-part, eight-week course, we will work on creating an interior space through drawing and painting.
In Part One, participants learn how to develop a convincing interior while working from observation, focusing on the establishment of architecture through geometry and large tonal relationships.
Part Two will be exploratory and intuitive, experimenting with ways of inhabiting and “dreaming into” the imagined three-dimensional space.
In Part Two, Jordan will be experimenting with painterly space: How can we play in pictorial space? How directly can space be made? How much can we disrupt it and still have it hold, still work?
- Week One will demonstrate exploring/establishing/finding space through gesture. Materials will include charcoal and ink wash.
- Week Two, working in oils, will continue the use of gesture, speed and accident – and add the complexity of observed color and tonality.
- Week Three will investigate the possibilities of marking as a catalyst for spatial experience and introduce non-tonal color.
- Week Four – we will experiment with VERY THICK PAINT, and see how far it can go and still establish the experience of space.
In addition to the demonstrations will be a LIVE ongoing Q&A, allowing for in-depth conversation the nuts and bolts of the exercise, as well as fielding general questions regarding a painting practice.
For intermediate and advanced. Course limited to 20 participants.
