With the publication of texts like, “Slow Looking” (Peter Clothier, 2012), “Slow Looking: The Art and Practice of Learning Through Observation” (Shari Tishman, 2017), “Seeing Slowly: Looking at Modern Art” (Michael Findlay, 2017), and “Slow Art: The Experience of Looking, Sacred Images to James Turrell” (Arden Reed, 2019), an increasing number of artists, critics, and curators are encouraging new ways to look at art involving heightened states of consciousness and immersive modes of attention to engage a deeper level of critical thinking. Drawing on these approaches for looking, this course will consider slowness also in relation to artistic practice - slowness as a methodology for making. Incorporating a range of introductory readings, written reflections, critiques, video screenings, brief lectures, and in-class studio exercises, the course will explore, through the lens of painting, techniques based in ideas of slowness, silence, stillness, patience, and meditative modes of creative practice. Artist statements will be an important part of the course, demonstrating each student’s individualized engagement with the course content. Suitable for beginners.
