In this course you will begin to explore the inter-related properties of colour and tone with regard to their applications in contemporary image making. This investigation will be informed by historical precedents in order to articulate your studio practice in relation to various frames of reference. By contrasting colour with black and white, this course will examine the outcomes different chromatic and tonal approaches produce across the disciplines of painting, photography, drawing and video.
This course deals with the evolution of colour theory and the important role considerations of light and dark, black and white continue to play in contemporary image making. It draws on the scientific and physiological influences that have shaped theories of colour and tone and their fundamental role in picture making and image composition.
