- VART1006 Visual Arts Practice II or any GDCV courses offered by AVA or any Visual Arts courses
In most all art forms, the artist is either moving away from the human form or closer to it. This fluctuation defines the need for further exploration of the body's ability to communicate and produce form that can further define artistic expression.
This course will explore the body as a landscape for appropriation. Students will look at the different techniques involved in using the human form as object and subject of their creative output. Students are to identify the human forms' innate ability to be abstracted and appropriated for self-expression. Students will explore the body in different mediums and processes from traditional to contemporary. There will be a focus on the connections that can be made between the generation of form, the creative process and the body as a performative object.
