In this class we will explore the methods and modes of painting abstraction. We will familiarize ourselves with a broad range of contemporary and art historical artists working within abstraction as an impetus for inspiration. Through our explorations we will discover intuitive points of contact in which to generate marks and imagery that bring the subconscious to the fore. In addition, various substrates/surfaces including those that are seemingly non-traditional will be considered. Students from all backgrounds are encouraged to join.
