Fall 2023 Intersession Drawing Marathon – VIRTUAL: Pathways to Abstraction with Fran O’Neill
This Drawing Marathon will explore pathways, literal and metaphorical roads, to the creation of abstract works. Participants will be encouraged to make many works and studies, with the idea of traveling beyond the threshold of what they might consider to be the final product, into new arenas of abstraction. Beginning with a pre-existing historical image (this could be a work chosen ahead of time, or a selection of works will be presented during the first session to choose from) participants will be encouraged to enact ways of shifting this image further into abstraction, focusing on how one image can inform the next. Various approaches via drawing will be explored; not limited to, but may include explorations of: shape, line, intersections, scale, collage and mark making.
