Still life will be the starting point for exploration of pictorial structure, space and invention. This will lead us to create images in the simplest terms: a series of shapes and colors made of paint (not a beach ball or a flower). We will generate permutations of the chosen motif through reduction and analysis. As we walk the line between accuracy and abstraction, we will see through and around the meaning of things to grasp relationships between objects and space. Mediums will include graphite, charcoal, ink, acrylic or oil paint, and collage. The personal voice of each painter will come through in the diverse results. Looking at historical and contemporary still life paintings will place the practice in a larger context.
