This unit asks students to explore the discipline of painting in a variety of ways. Alongside a staged technical approach concepts such as remediation and representation are used to frame the practice in historical and contemporary contexts. Key to the unit is a concentration on the medium as crucial in the development of the way we perceive the image, and practice art, in the 21st century. Thus the unit specifically addresses painting by exploring materiality, techniques, and its surface qualities; as well as its deployment in the history of images. Students do this through classes, workshops, studio intensive weeks, critical discussions and seminars. One of the main tools used to develop a folio of artworks is the workbook/journal, which acts as a place to gather information, contextualize ideas, experiment and reflect. To resolve a series of artworks students will develop their own ideas, technical approaches and problem-solving skills in this dynamic and contemporary unit.
