Vanitas Winter 2013

These drawings were executed in the Vanitas style.  Each student collected objects, which were to be used in a preliminary photograph.  The resulting composition was meant to remind us of the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death.   However, students could diverge from common Vanitas symbols of decay and ephemeral nature of life and allude to something personal, that this sensuous atmosphere would inspire.

Order and Chaos

In this first drawing project, students were given a non-standard format, which they had to develop in a dynamic way.  The pictorial space had to be filled with positive-negative areas (solid versus empty), using designs elements: line, shape and texture. Principles of Design were then used, to establish in the composition, unity and balance.

Tattoos and Camouflages

These drawings were done as a final project in the 2nd semester DISA drawing course.  The notions of Tattoos and Camouflage were used to give these self-portraits other possible levels of interpretation.  In this project, the students’ silhouettes were projected full scale, onto the paper surface, creating a natural boundary between the revealed-self and the hidden-self.  The skin could be layered with ‘tattooed’ content, or the background could take over and contain meaningful elements.

Architectural Drawing Structure and Light

When planning for this drawing, these second semester DISA students had to locate an area of the college where they would capture space.
The first part of the drawing consisted in structuring the architectural environment: mapping the perspective lines in proportion to the various areas.
The second part of the drawing consisted in allowing LIGHT to enter the architecture, bouncing off the surrounding structures.
Students could work from the existing lights or create imaginary lights that would load the atmosphere with surreal qualities.

The Self Portrait

Nothing is better than a Self-Portrait to sum-up the different areas of the 2nd semester DISA program: drawing, painting and digital imaging. In this final project, students integrated their studio expertise with a realistic or a fictional Self-Portrait inspired from an artist.

DRAWING FROM MUSIC

The inspiration for this project was a piece of music chosen by the student. Sound inspired lines, shapes and colors.  Students worked with linear paths and bitmap elements in order to interpret rhythm. From our second semester DISA students, created using Photoshop.

exquisite corpse

The following images are from an assignment given in the Drawing Option class. Loosely based on the format of an exquisite corpse, students were asked to do a self-portrait in three segments. The top segment consisted of a direct form observation portrait of themselves. In the middle segment, they were to consider themselves as something else – either as an animate or inanimate object. And finally they were asked to place themselves in a specific location, environment, or situation.
