Figure Painting - Animal and Man - Edward Muybridge
In this course all participants can develop their personal approach with individual support and consultations. As a possible direction of the work photographer Edvard Muiyvridge shall be mentioned. Using scientific methods, he wanted to establish an aesthetic basis. His photographies can be a starting point for all kinds of artistic involvements: photography, painting, drawing, film. His men and animals in movement can be copied, painted or repainted, drawn, or assembled as a collage. Working with series of small formats can be a suitable possibility here. For this, materials like water- based oil paints or acrylic paint on variable surfaces as paper, copies, newspapers, photographies, cardboard, trasparencies, glass, etc. can be used.
