This intermediate level acrylic painting course will focus perceptions of pictorial space in the painted world. Historically artists have presented space in painting using the screen of Renaissance perspective, as well as the flattened box of Modernism. Painting is a paradox, and students will be encouraged to explore this idea as they navigate its two-dimensional surface while situating the painting as an object in the world.
Exercises will be used to develop an understanding of how colour and compositional elements come together to create a sense of real physical space. Students will paint from life as well as from materials gathered from digital and analogue sources. Students should have an intermediate level of painting with a knowledge of colour theory and a general confidence with the medium and its application.
