Painted Bodies: The Contemporary Figure
Course No. PTG 220-320-420 Credits: 3.0
Prerequisite(s) Intro to Painting: Painting History: 1828-Present
This course deals with the position of the figure within contemporary painting and a studio practice extending from that position. Figurative painting represents the continuation of a tradition that extends back before history and is yet poised to reach into any foreseeable future. Class discussions will be based on readings that deal with critical and historical issues surrounding the figure in painting and on the work of contemporary artists dealing with the figure from a painting perspective. By the end of the semester students will be expected to develop a cohesive body of work dealing with the figure as its subject. The student will also be required to articulate a statement that situates their work within a contemporary practice of figurative painting. This course is open to all students with the prerequisite of Intro to Painting or with the permission of the instructor.
