ARTS 365 Fall 2012 Multiples and Painting

This course will investigate the processes and ideas used in combining reproduced images with acrylic painting in a synthesis of the multiple and the one of a kind, the mechanized image and the more direct application of paint. The multiple is often viewed as more "mediated" than an original, unique object -- while painting is often romanticized as a more intuitive eye to hand process. Students will explore how one can reconcile these two approaches as contemporary artists in a time when the mass-produced multiple is so present in our visual culture. Reproduced images may include prints (etchings, lithographs, relief prints, etc), photographs, or copies that will be collaged, assembled and redefined through the addition of painting. While the subject matter will be open, there will be general thematic assignments during the first half of the semester. As a tutorial, this course is designed to meet individual needs, stress student participation and responsibility for learning, and to examine differing points of view. Students will meet in groups of two or three for critiques of individual projects in the tutorial format: i.e., students are expected to give a half hour presentation weekly regarding their projects and selected readings, and to respond to criticism and questions by the peer student and the instructor. Students will also meet once a week as a group for demonstrations, slide presentations, and on-campus field trips.
