Investigating colour as form will enable you to think about colour theory and explore a synthesis of processes, structure and surface. You will be encouraged to consider how you develop a composition, specificity of colour choice and surface fracture (handling of the paint). You will be encouraged to experiment the interaction of colour throughout the course; it’s fluidity, chromatic value, scale and dynamic juxtapositions.
The context and theory will be important in underpinning your initial exploration. Your relationship with the mechanics of painting will develop from collage experiments particularly focused on colour contrast and form, collages produced will be a spring-board for a series of abstract colour compositions. From Matisse to the colour field painters such as Rothko, Helen Frankenthaler and contemporary colourist such as Sarah morris, Tauber Auerbach, Selma Parlour and others.
