Are you ready to explore how to work between representation and abstraction ?? It’s an exciting place to work between those two. Representation is what you see out in the world and abstraction is an individual response. We will work with photos of the natural world and interpret it in an abstract way. These moments of abstraction allow us to dive into the language of painting -- exploring techniques where drips, splashes energize the composition while also alluding to something more (a waterfall, an atmosphere, and so on). Many example artists will be shown and discussed.
Let’s see how far we can push abstraction and still have it read as something !
