Thursday, October 28th, 2021
10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

This dynamic and diverse course introduces students to the many ways the figure is used in contemporary painting. Approaches such as portraiture or groups of figures in particular settings or locations will be discussed and used as a source for class projects. Students will work from the live model, photographs, drawings, other artists’ works and the imagination. Ideas around identity, narrative and place are explored to give a deeper context to the subject matter. Various artists who use the figure in their work will be discussed, including Otobong Nkanga, Ida Applebroog, Alex Katz, Momma Anderson, Jenny Saville, Noah Davis, Janet Werner, Neo Rauch, Liu Xiaodong, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye and Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun to name a few. Previous painting experience recommended.
