This unit focuses on the development of ideas and images into resolved paintings. You will build on skills acquired in preceding units to explore painting using a range of media and techniques, drawing on historical approaches and recent innovations. The focus of the unit is to further develop your conceptual approach to painting, using it as a vehicle for the expression of responses to set themes. You will be guided through processes of observation and reflection, connecting your studio-based experiences with contextual knowledge of contemporary art through critical discourse. The goal is to become increasingly competent in using exploratory processes to develop resolved work, whilst critically engaging with the artworks of your fellow students and other artists.
