Painting 2B FSP212


This unit builds upon experimentation and inquiry undertaken in self-directed projects in unit FSP211. The focus of the unit is on bringing project work and the deployment of ideas to conceptual and technical resolution. You may deal with many of the more traditional issues surrounding painting or you may employ new technologies, or other non-conventional processes, as central to your artistic concerns. Study is guided through one-to-one consultation with staff, through group critique and through lectures that expose you to a broad range of ideas and methods relevant to contemporary art practice.
