Re: painting: Ruth


Date: Tue Dec 02 2003 - 04:55:56 PST

I have my students currently doing a formalist type geometry painting. They are beginning level painters; fr and soph. They are at the level of geometry in their math sequence, approximately. So I have them illustrate a geometry theorem. Inside the shapes the colors must change (tinted, neutralized, change hue) but are blended smooth. Their palette must be of blues and browns, as well as white. the theorem can be enhanced through repetition of any and all geometry elements. They must have a point of emphasis. They can do something as simple as the 'flower of life' hexagon to the pythagorean theorem to a Frank stella type of thing. I am really into this project as it is clear to see the interdisciplinary benefits.
