The contemporary notion of painting in the expanded field broadens our expectations of how and why a painting is made. In this workshop, we will use painting as an act of transition, collaboration, and intervention. You will be encouraged to develop or further a painting practice that explores alternative materials, processes, and concepts to generate a broader understanding of a painting practice. We will investigate the question of what embodies painting. How can painting’s medium and surfaces be thoughtfully expanded through an interdisciplinary approach with photography, sculpture, installation, performance, and digital media? Participants will be introduced to notable contemporary artists, technical demonstrations, exercise prompts, and individual and group critique. The workshop is open to all levels of experience from the beginning to seasoned artist.Megan-Hinton-Materials-List-SP24.docx.pdf
Megan Hinton is a painter known for reconfiguring genres of landscape, figurative, and object painting. Her art utilizes appropriation from painting’s history along with found and discarded material to investigate line, color, shape, surface, and scale. This fusion of subject and formalism spans further to her work in collage, sculpture, installation, photography, and performance. Hinton holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary arts from Mills College, where she won the Hung Lui Painting Prize. She has received residency fellowships from Twenty Summers in Provincetown and The Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium. She is the recent recipient of the Alice C. Cole ‘42 Merit Grant from Wellesley College. Hinton is also an art educator, curator, and writer.
