Painting Methods and Materials: The Graphic Novel

Few art forms exert as much influence today as comics and graphic novels as visual culture is becoming increasingly flattened, demolishing long-established boundaries between high and low. Incorporating figuration, narrative, complex spatial and cinematic strategies, and forms also pioneered by the avant-gardes, sequential art has risen to a level of unprecedented complexity. But what can it teach painting? This class seeks to establish a dialogue between these connected but mostly disparate disciplines, cross-pollinating their formal and conceptual concerns.
