Summer Workshop Program 2023
This workshop focuses on the condition abstraction presents in amalgamating disparate parts of our psychology and philosophy in the medium of painting. Specific prompts will provide fodder for the creation of a visual language which may arrive from a representational substrate to ultimately morph in the abstract. We will delve in both past and contemporary painting to augment our perception of the lineage of abstraction and the possibilities it may present today.Rubens-Ghenov-Materials-List-SP23.pdf
