This unit covers historical and contemporary concepts and techniques relating to non-objective painting. Painting is addressed in its history and as a category of contemporary art. It is broadly defined as an extended practice with a broad range of material, spatial and intellectual possibilities. Geometric abstraction, gestural abstraction and minimalism have all made their marks on contemporary painting, which often mixes them together. In the course a variety of these approaches are explored through focused and self-initiated projects. As their studies progress, students are encouraged to develop their own approaches and set out their own parameters to create a valid studio practice.
