The Warp and Woof of Picture Making

Students from a Painting 2 course will present on a figurative painting project completed in Fall 2009. The project began with a look into how artist Edward Hopper created his psychological Drama Room in New York (1932) based on his reading and reformulation of Edward Degas' painting Interiour (1868-69). Students studied geometric design systems such as the "armature of the rectangle," as well as the more personalized compositional tendencies of particular artists in order to learn and create their own fictional visions. Each student will also reflect on the meanings and metaphoric possibilities that emerged throughout the process.
