Tape It! Paint It! Spray It!

After our shapes were filled with patterned and colored clippings, we took yet another approach to collage building and added gesso and acrylic paints to our works. We looked and the works of German Artist Franz West, and the emulsion collages of American artist Robert Rauschenberg to notice the subtleties of paint over photographic image. ImageImageImage


The students learned to mask and tape off sections of the work before applying Acrylic and spray paint to their Inverted Self Portraits. Looking at artist Albert Oehlen to again draw their attention to the creating collaged forms out of various material densities and finishes as well as text and photographic content. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
