Honours subject area

Painting addresses historical and contemporary concepts and techniques relating to contemporary painting practice. Painting is an extended practice with a broad range of representational and non-objective, material, spatial and intellectual possibilities. The object, colour and surface, installation and arrangement, the readymade, typography, photography and digital processes may each profoundly impact on painting as a contemporary practice. In the painting studio these are explored through focused and self-initiated projects. As your studies progress, you will be encouraged to develop your own approaches and set out parameters to create an independent studio practice.
