Painting in the Expanded Field will encourage you to develop an individually conceived art practice that explores materials, processes, technologies and formats which can contribute to a broader understanding of painting as a discipline. Questions of interest include, What constitutes painting? How might an understanding of painting as a medium, material, process, object, concept or discourse be meaningfully expanded through an engagement with other disciplines such as photography, sculpture, installation, design, craft and digital media? To what extent can an interaction with everyday life and 'non-painting' take place and still relate to painting?
Painting in the Expanded Field is an advanced Year 3 studio course within the BFA(Hons) or BMA(Hons) program. It is one of a suite of interrelated core Painting courses that comprise a four-course specialisation in the BFA(Hons) or BMA(Hons) program. This specialist course covers professional studio knowledge, skills and attitudes for painting. This course builds upon concepts and methodologies introduced in Year 2 Painting courses, and relates to companion Year 3 Painting courses by providing a context for more advanced and self-directed studies.
