Abstract painting is a conscious breakaway from traditional realistic painting. A unique decision made over a century ago retains great value today. Since then, many abstract artists have made important contributions to the art world. Perhaps one of the most significant contributions was changing the public perception of what art should represent. The personal approach to art making is a newer idea within visual art history. The class introduces concepts and techniques used by masters of Abstraction. Three different artists influence the class direction. The artists for the spring session are: Vincent VanGogh, Andy Warhol, and Julian Stanczak. Ideas discussed and practiced in class include: color as subject, painting as object, and multiple process applications. In the studio, we will work together towards our goals. Two paintings are made from each artist. The first painting is small in scale, simple, and is considered a study or investigation piece. The second painting is large in scale, complex, and is considered a final or finished piece. Three large paintings are planned and made with the intention for exhibition. All of the artworks produced aim to visually emulate specific styles. Acrylic paint application and color mixing will be presented through instructor demonstrations.
