Figure – Figurine Sculpture Marathon – with Brandt Junceau

Summer 2019

Course Description

Some modern artists have attempted to work as if visual art had not yet begun 35-40,000 years ago; Philip Guston’s notional “first painter” for instance. This course pursues that thought experiment. We start with some found bit of anything, natural or manmade, that somehow suggests the body. Working by hand, probably (not necessarily) small, we excavate a rude basic sense of “person.” That elemental germ might well linger in your work thereafter.
