20th to 21st Century Art
Tutor Anthony Daley
Learn the methods and respond to the multiple developments in painting and the art movements of the 20 – 21 Century. We will cover the developments in post war America and its period of ‘buckets- full- of- paint’ attitude – the sheer abundance and the abandonment of Abstract Expressionism. We will then consider the methods and materials of today’s painting by visiting contemporary practices including urban graffiti which has a superficial resemblances that takes us full circle back to the primordial environmental mark making of cave paintings.
The course will also touch on the historical context, techniques, methods and materials of the physical substance of the painting at its confluence with the emotional and spiritual driving forces behind the invention and practise of this profound human activity. Our aim is to provide you with an inspirational springboard to your own painting practice.
