Drawing on the declaration "All artists borrow, great artists steal' this studio-based course explores the diverse ways in which painters have drawn on influences from artists from one another, from other times and other cultures. This is a studio-based course supplemented by lectures and seminars exploring interesting examples of this kind of cross-fertilization across the history and contemporary practice of painting. In the studio students will explore the work of artists of interest to them as a means of enriching their own practice.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- demonstrate and describe a resourceful exploration of a range of painting principles, processes and material techniques drawn from historical and/or contemporary precedents;
- apply appropriate advanced painting skills and knowledge tailored to the development of their individual interests;
- reflect on the role of formal and material decisions in the generation of meaning and affect in painting; and
- clearly articulate their processes of creative thinking, analysis and critical reflection.
