Course detail

Studio Follow-up I - Painting 1 - winter

FaVU-M1M1-ZAcad. year: 2020/2021

With the help of tutorials and consultations, students acquire theoretic, technological and creative knowledge and experience. They check possible variants of their final MA project.
It is time to stop perceiving the picture only as an item of unsolicited information, or as an object intended only for an analysis (an analysis is connected with destruction, observation is connected with creation - A. Tarkovskij). It is time to see the picture as a meeting, as an attempt or opportunity to see. The author should ask: for me, is the picture a window, mirror, mirror out of focus, "painted board", object, construction, langugage (always?), sign, pay (also?), "thrown away bag"...?
