There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



This subject explores a range of techniques and conventions in painting through a practice-based approach informed by an investigation into contemporary painting practice. Using contemporary contexts and theories, students gain experience in colour theory, the behaviour of different pigments, media and grounds, and different modes of representation. By using these processes students also examine the diversity and relevance of representation through paint. The role and relevance of the painter in the post-medium context is examined within a discourse regarding aesthetics, education, creativity and critical theory.
