Painting/Printmaking Art 539, PAINTING/PRINTMAKING

Painting 539, Perpetual Present Process This course aims to foster the development of a generative space for action between intention and execution — a way to work incrementally and iteratively towards what is not-yet- known. An expansive consideration of process will be central to this pursuit. While this term has often been associated with material process, we will work to extend its scope to consider artwork as a continuously present process inclusive of thought, research, action, contemplation, and states beyond and between. Though every art object is the product of some process that occurred at least partially in the past, how can we undo this finality to experience the present tense of looking as a continuation of the process of making? Reading/discussion combined with group critique. Halsey Rodman
