Landscape Painting and the Environment with David Kaarsemaker

July 17 @ 9:00 am - July 20 @ 4:00 pm

$500.00

This workshop will combine art history with art making, exploring how landscape painting in Western art reflects the complicated relationship between humans and the environment. This course will focus in particular on changes in the conception of depth in painting and how this corresponds with the increasing separation between subject and object in Western thought more generally.

We will explore ways of extending and flattening illusory space, working in a range of media (acrylic paint, charcoal, ink, pastels…) and from a variety of subjects, including collage, hand-made models, and plein air observation. We will consider the mystical space of Byzantine Icons, the development of linear perspective in the Renaissance, the concept of the Sublime in Romanticism and Modernism, and the fragmentation of space throughout the 20th century.
