Class notes, SAIC, 1991
Look at these artists:
Gaylen Hansen — all in Ryerson Library
Cheryl Lemli (?)
Phillip Guston (content inherent to painting as well as line, form, etc.)
ask Laurel Bradley, AH teacher.
Gradual accumulation of paint on surface until you get to center of interest.
All of Francis Bacon’s paintings are covered with glass – they reflect the viewer & architecture of the room. Change as you change position to it.
North European as opposed to Italian implied misunderstanding. Paint is subordinate to image.
Frank Auerbach – 1988 Brit.
The nobility of the people: their pictorial methods – Frida Kahlo – Mexican Socialism.
Check out Mexican Fine Art Museum – book of prints, like Dubuffet – great stuff!
Boccioni - 1916. “The Dynamism of the Cavalry Charge ” | “States of Mind – Those Who Come & Those Who Go”
Dubuffet: Art of the Insane Children
Primitive cultures, etc.
Christian Schad – To uncover unconscious VS. Crudeness behind apparent sophistication
Gabriele Munter – japanese print influence.
Sue Coe – disjointed, contemporary narrative.
Carroll Dunham – subway art – hi/low art mix.
Paint on wood with gesso – Pat Steir
