Virtual Drawing/Painting Marathon – with Graham Nickson & Guests
We will investigate the intentions that spur the creation of a painting as we learn to think with our eyes. In this Drawing and Painting Marathon, we will move between opposites and extremities of scale, of tone, of color, of many formal and narrative elements in image making. The nature of looking and the nature of creating will be explored in depth. We will look at synthetic paintings, synthetic drawings, as well as perceptual drawings that are made from information during the course of the program. We will refer to images from the very distant past and weave them into our contemporary concerns. Transference of form into new form will occur. We will explore images about transformation to make new images as described in several ancient myths. Drawing from the live model, occasional centaurides, centaurs, and other mythological creatures may enter and influence our unfolding work.
