Assessment – POP 1 – Artist Statement ‘Painting Process as Narrative’

Painting Process as Narrative  My body of work created over the time of level 1 painting course is a narrative that reflects my visual end embodied journey of interacting with my subject matter. Through my profession in art therapy I became continuously interested in exploring different ways to express and present embodied mental images and sensations of personal encounters. My project work shows a gradual development with an…

Assignment 5: Self-Evaluation

  My self evaluation against the assessment criteria for visual arts. Demonstration  of technical and Visual Skills:  In my assignment I let my paintings be informed by my photographs taken on location of the deteriorating house. I looked into different aspects of painting. e.g. monotype as a process step-by-step approach and overpainted photographs. I discovered for the first time how…

Franz Kafka – Der Bau (The Burrow), 1931

A story about a badger and his burrow. As often with Kafka his stories are written from an animal perspective but need to be translated and looked at from a human inner perspective. The story is about the self consciousness and self-perceptions of the badger struggling between the homely burrow and the alienated outside. Inside his burrow he cannot see…

Assignment 5: Mindmap and development of ideas

My personal encounter alongside the process of deterioration and memories and the notion of the uncanny. Step#1: Overview achievements, scope of project and context in a corner of my studio … a kind of triptych – a narrative of my process: => quite a complex picture of various aspects => I need to reduce and focus Step #2:  I will consider my goal and questions that I will ask myself…

Contexual research: Narratives in painting

My last assignment 4 was about serial painting and cluster assembly as a format for narrative. I experimented in part 3 also with other narrative in perhaps rather illutrative way of narrative, telling a story – see Project 3  ‘Telling a Story – Keti Koti‘. I was wondering how I could work on other formats of narrative for my personal…

Assignment 5: Contextual research ‘The Uncanny’

Researching ‘The Uncanny‘ in relation to visual arts, personal encounters and sensations and buildings. My initial sketch for my project related to the deteriorating residential ‘haunted’ building and I associated this with the uncanny. In reference to E. Jentsch and S. Freud the main aspect of the german word ‘Das Unheimliche‘ is linked to the fearful and emerging aspect of something…

Assignment 5: Personal Project and preparatory thoughts

A first collection of loose ideas crossing my mind. Theme: I was triggered by my tutor’s feedback after assignment 4, the reference to Cornelia Parker’s ‘blowing up the shed’ documentation and my reflection and personal experiences. In our neighbourhood in East Frisia (Ostfriesland, Germany) is a vacant old small residential building and the last tenant/owner obviously passed away. The building already deteriorated some time…

Project 1 – Research Point 2: Abstract Expressionism_Tachism

I already looked briefly in my previous research on paint application on dripping and splashing in the context of the American Abstract Expressionist movement what I will investigate a bit deeper in this research (Schaffeld, weblog post 16 Jan 2016) American Abstract Expressionism One main aspect connected with this movement is Action Painting alongside the dripping and splashing of paint. This is…

Project 1 – Research Point 1: Applicaton of Paint

At the beginning of this course I already looked up some ways to apply and blend paint – the rather  ‘traditional’ way including impressionists (Schaffeld, weblog post 17 Feb 2016). Blending techniques with brushes: Gradient blending: control of transition (eg. Tim Maguire ‘Slits 94.27‘, 1994) Wet-in-wet blending: randomly spaced brush blots (eg. Richard Diebenkorn ‘xxx‘, ) Scumbling: a motted effect…

Reflection: Achievements and Outlook

Past achievements I was deeply engaged in part 3 ‘Figurative‘ and part 4 ‘Looking out‘  with various subjects and parallel project works on my own in context of the course scope: Part 3: Daily Self portrait paintings to sharpen my observation skills and to elaborate further the subject of ‘self-portrait’. Here I found the development of certain aspects e.g. object…

Assignment 4: Reflection on tutors’ feedback

Summary: Despite my delay of deadline by nearly one week and the festive days off, I received the formative report back from my tutor very quickly. Overall I left an impressive work for part 4 and my tutor thought that I already pre-empted the next assignment 5 and by that I would have completed the course by including aspects required now in this…

Assignment 4 – Self Evaluation

My self evaluation against the assessment criteria for visual arts. Demonstration  of technical and Visual Skills:  During part 4 I embarked on my parallel sketchbook work to explore and discover the world around me at me work and living place in Switzerland. My regular quick sketches trained not only my observational skills of traditional landscape paintings. I could learn more…

Assignment 4 – A Landscape Painting – Initial thoughts and context

Conclusion and consolidation for my work forward: A landscape is a cultural constructed image. In visual art and especially painting typically viewed as a framed image. For me the question can I embed this in my work? How can I apply perspective in a different way (see my painting in Project 1 Ex 1 ‘Linear perspective‘)? How can I incorporate architectural…

Contextual Research: suggested readings – Drawing as narrative

As part of my assignment 3 feedback received we discussed the topic of narratives and visual images. My tutor suggested some further reading. I do not spend that much time here on the research just taken short notes and links. I have to come back to this at a later stage. Besides serial paintings as such it involves other media, moving…

Part 4 – Review painting and sketches

My reflection on part 4 ‘Looking Out‘ Which have been the most engaging exercises? => The most physical engaging exercise for me was Project 4 ‘outdoor painting exercise‘ and as a kind of continuation Project 5 Ex3 ‘Working from photograph (Cloud Sublime)’. The most mentally engaging exercise with surpisingly outcome was P5Ex2 ‘Squaring up (Memories)’. Besides those exercises I find my sketchbook explorations…

Contextual research: Juhani Pallasmaa – ‘The embodied image’

  “One of the greatest paradoxes of contemporary culture is that at a time when the image reigns supreme the very notion of a creative human imagination seems under mounting threat. We no longer appear to know who exactly produces or controls the images which condition our consciousness. – Richard Kearney ‘The Wake of Imagination’, 1994 I placed this quote by…

Exhibition visit: Paul Klee and the Surrealist

I went to the local exhibition in Bern, Switzerland at the Paul Klee Museum (Available from: http://www.zpk.org/en/exhibitions/current/paul-klee-and-the-surrealists-1253.html) on “Paul Klee and the Surrealists” (18 Nov 2016 – 12 Mar 2017). I went there as based on my latest contextual research (Schaffeld, 24 Nov 2016) I became more aware of the techniques and ideas of the Surrealist movement in context of Dada,…

Contextual research: Moving images, architectural images and the embodied image

”In a work of art we encounter ourselves and our own being-in-the-world in an intensified manner.”   –   J. Pallasmaa Following my last tutor’s feedback and an earlier discussion with her I am interested in the embodied experience of images in a wider context. Painting could be seen as an illusion on a more or less flat surface, it can also the seen time…

Project 3 – Research Point: Expressive Landscape

Images related to this research are also available on my Pinterest board at: https://de.pinterest.com/sjschaffeld/landscape-art-emotive/ All online images accessed between 20 and 24 Nov 2016 Symbolism (1880 – 1910) see: http://www.theartstory.org/movement-symbolism.htm Symbolism was a movement in art and literature that emphasised the expression of ideas through the symbolic meaning of forms, lines, shapes and colors. It was not any longer about realistic and naturalistic depiction…

Followed by residence in  Düsseldorf and Cologne, he lives and works today in Lugarno, Switzerland.  The artist’s extensive body…

Part Four – Research point: Landscape Painting

Landscape painting is a wide area and I feel that I have to condense my research to the most relevant ones to my own approach. I will look rather at those artists that attract my attention either by visual impact, uncommon use of material, or unique perspective and approaches. Landscape can have a meaning from idyl, refuge and retreat from…

Contextual notes for part 4 (3): Large scale painting

In this third part I am looking how large scale works can be made.  For all projects especially assignment work:  Large paintings can be considered as one single large canvas like executed by Richard Diebenkorn (1922 – 1993) with his ‘Ocean Park‘ series of very large (up to 8 1/2 to 6 1/2 feet) abstract paintings (non-gestural) as a kind “gorgeous compositions of color…

Contextual note for part 4 (2): The Sublime

In this second part I will have a short sneak in the sublime and its meaning for visual art. For all projects ‘Sublime‘:  My tutor suggested me to look at the concept reps. theory of the Sublime. I am currently residing in Switzerland in the canton Bern and would have easily access to the mountains around me and the snow dropped already down there. Sublime…

Contextual notes for part 4 (1): Looking Out

Before embarking on part 4 with the outdoor resp. ‘looking out’ elements I consider key aspects for me to keep in mind and to reflect on till next assignment. My tutor provided me some helpful suggestions to look out for. In the first part I am looking at the architectural elements in context with the relationship between the viewer, the artist, me and…

Assignment 3: Reflection on tutors’ feedback

Yesterday I had a skype tutorial with my tutor and received afterwards the formative assignment report back. I really liked the kind of tutorial in a dialogue and reflection on my current status, interest, and possible way forward. Summary: One aspect that I am aware of and came up again was how I as a prolific student can stay more focused. My tutor…

Assignment 3 – Self Evaluation

My self evaluation against the assessment criteria for visual arts. Demonstration  of technical and Visual Skills:  In part 3 I explored more and deeper the materiality of the oil, acrylic and gouache paint. Besides that, I worked with dry pastels especially in my parallel personal project of a daily self-portrait. I enjoyed working with dry pastels as I can easily…

Exhibition: Juliette Blightman – Extimacy, Kunsthalle Bern

Today I went to the newly opened exhibition at the Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland (24 September – 13 November 2016). Available from: http://www.kunsthalle-bern.ch/eng/extimacy. Images (drawings, paintings, photographs) as a visual diary. Room 2: Cluster 1 => The drawings (each A5 format, each titled with the Day Number e.g. ‘Day 193,2016‘ top left) do show daily and unspectacular objects and scenes. Some reminded me…

Project 3 – Research Point: Figures in Interiors

I am going to make first an overview about figures in interior in art history before looking specifically at some painting I find appealing. Overview: In part 2 I researched the interior genre in art history (Schaffeld, 12 Jul  2016) and found that in the Dutch genre paintings quite often people, mostly women and children, were depicted. I think for obvious reason…

Project 2 – Conclusion on my portrait paintings

What technical demands did you encounter? => Mastering various media (e.g. oil sticks) was a challenge. Also I noticed that I am tending to work rather realistic and concerned about accuracy when working on larger scale and when spending more time at my easel. More distance to my easel and with less preparation work and less time typically allows me to…

Painting atmosphere: Kaye Donachie

After my assignment 2 my tutor gave me feedback on some of my sketchbook pages where I developed a sense of luminosity. In this context she suggested my to look at the works by Kaye Donachie (b. 1970), Glasgow born british painter. She works mostly at medium range of formats (40×50 to 50x60cm) on figurative paintings.  Her paintings are depictions of utopian,…

Contextual research: Broken or muted Colors

My tutor suggested me after assignment 2 to look into using broken colors by other artists. Broken or muted colors are colors mixed by tertiary or complementary secondary colors (see exercises from part 2 – click here) Walter Sickert (1860 – 1942) was born in Munich, Germany, a printmaker and painter and was a member of the Camden Town Group…

Project 2 – Research Point: Portraits that convey mood and atmosphere

See also my research on ‘Self portraits in art history’ – click here. The color blue: Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973) ‘Blue Series’, 1902 – ‘Two Sisters’, 1902  (http://www.arthermitage.org/Pablo-Picasso/Two-Sisters.html) or – ‘Blue Nude‘, 1902 (http://www.pablopicasso.org/blue-nude.jsp) or – ‘Melancholy Woman‘, 1902 (http://www.dia.org/object-info/d1442e0a-e2b0-43cb-ac03-07f34acd5471.aspx?position=6) Edvard Munch (1863 – 1944) – ‘Melancholy III‘ (http://www.moma.org/learn/moma_learning/edvard-munch-melancholy-evening-on-the-shore-1896). Picasso’s ‘Blue series’ is known as his transition period towards…

Book: John Ruskin ‘Elements of Drawing – Letter 3’

John Ruskin (1819 – 1900) was an english art critic, draughtsman and watercolorist. My tutor suggested to look into his third letter about color. Overall I sense that Ruskin is quite strict in his rule setting and he challenges the ‘amateur’ artist strongly on what may be nearly un-reachable. Perhaps this has to be seen in the context of his…

Exhibition: Francis Picabia (1879 – 1953) in Zurich

Large retrospective t the Kunsthaus Museum in Zurich, Switzerland (03 Jun – 25 Sep 2016) (http://www.kunsthaus.ch/picabia/en/). After Zurich the show moves to New York: MoMA (20 Nov 2016 – 19 Mar 2017). I was so impressed by the immense diversity and prolific body of work done by Francis Picabia during his artistic life (more than 200 works exhibited). He went through so…

Assignment 2 – Reflection on tutor’s feedback

I received a very comprehensive and constructive feedback that I am satisfied with. Many comments were quite aligned to my own feelings to my works – although I was not always able to phrase them in the right context for myself. I had the chance to have a follow up skype call with my tutor to clarify some topics.  I am…

Project 2 – Research Point: Self-Portrait

An overview of self-portraits in art history From previous researches and exhibition visit dedicated to the self-artists-portraits (Schaffeld, Sep and Dec 2015) I understand self-portraits as I wide area that goes far beyond representing merely the image of the self. It can help to reflect on the artist’s identity or to mirror the image of the “ME” the artist wants to convey.…

Exhibition – Otto Mueller (1874 – 1930) in Emden, Germany

During my stay in Germany, I went to the exhibition of Otto Mueller (1874 – 1930), a german expressionist and member of the group ‘Die Bruecke‘ in Kunsthalle Emden (http://kunsthalle-emden.de/mueller/). The title of the exhibition was ‘Otto Mueller – natuerlich nackt (naturally naked)‘ Otto Mueller was an important artist of the German Expressionism. He joined 1910 the group ‘Die Bruecke‘ (The Bridge)‘ founded…

Notes – Part 3: Figure and Portrait Painting

I am really looking forward to figure and portrait painting. During my first and previous OCA course ‘Drawing 1’ it was the figurative part where I found eventually a new confidence in my artistic approach. I developed an intimate relationship between media and surface in a constant interaction and engagement during the process of the making. I want to leverage this into my painting approach.…

Assignment 2 – Self evaluation

My self evaluation against the assessment criteria for visual arts. Demonstration  of technical and Visual Skills: Part 2 allowed me to explore more the basics of colour concepts and visual perception of colour in an objective (I doubt this is possible at all) way of matching colours and tonal values and an subjective way of how to create atmosphere and…

Project 4 – Research Point: Interiors genre

See also my research and weblog post on ‘Domestic interiors’ as part of my Drawing 1 course unit. (Schaffeld, 02 March 2015) With the growing wealth in the Netherlands in the late 16th and 17th century, two genres made became quite popular: still life and interiors. The first one with focus on abundance and depiction of precious objects that were…

Project 4 – Research Point: Linear Perspective

During my OCA course ‘Drawing 1’ I researched the traditional context of linear perspective and how it became a convention in visual arts since the Renaissance. (Schaffeld, weblog post 2015) Linear (or central) perspective is the mathematical approximation of how one observer do perceive the world around him as described by Leon Battista Alberti (1404–72) in his treatise De Pictura (on painting).  Mainly it consists…

Gallery Visit – Ian Davenport (b. 1966) in Zurich, Switzerland

Ian Davenport – Cadence (15th April – 28th May, 6th June – 16 July, 2016) at Gallery AndresThalmann (http://www.andresthalmann.com/CMS/en-GB/Exhibitions/Ian%20Davenport%20-%20Cadence.aspx?Sel=8) Already in the context of my personal project as started during part 5 of Drawing 1 course unit, I was fascinated by the work of Ian Davenport and his ‘color obsession’ and puddle paintings of parallel color stripes in multiple variations.…

Project 3 – Research Point: Optical Effects

“Artists enhance and elaborate the effects, whereas scientists contract and constrain them.” (Nick Wade, 2003) Optical effects are based on visual perception associated to observed constraints and conventions. Pascal Mamassian (2016) explores in his article about ‘Ambiguities and conventions in the perception of visual art‘ how the human eye and mind of the observer resolves ambiguous scenes in everyday perception and comparing them…

Exhibition – Paul Signac (1863 – 1935) in Lausanne, Switzerland

Project 2: Linear qualities in painting – Contextual research

In preparation for this exercise I was curious to see what else I can learn form drawing with paint and linear qualities. How artists using this in different approaches and if I can build on one or the other for my own work. Contextual research: This exercise is searching for drawing, line markings in a painting. At first the bold…

Project 2 – Research Point: Still life

During my last OCA course unit ‘Drawing 1’ I did a thorough research on still life in art history and pulled up a table that illustrated for me the evolution of still-life (Schaffeld, 2015). What I know so far about Still life : A range from illusionistic painting with Trompe d’Oeil effect (e.g. Pieter Aertsen, Jan Fyt, Juan Sanchez Cotan) towards more coloristic…

In his multifaceted work…

Assignment 1 – Reflection on tutor’s feedback

I had today a skype call (tutorial) with my tutor and I found it very helpful to interact with my tutor in this way. I reflected on the formative report she sent me beforehand (draft) and this was base for our discussion and her support. She highlighted in her report several topics that at times also went beyond level 1…

Part Two – Research Point: Color theories Chevreul

Michel Chevreul (1786-1889), a french chemist was once commissioned by a french tapestry manufacturer to investigate the phenomena of fading colors and dull dyes. The cause seemed to be in bad dyes performance. What he found out was not a fading process but a color phenomena derived from a simultaneous color contrast from adjacent colored threads on the tapestry that influence each…

Assignment 1 – Self evaluation

My self evaluation against the assessment criteria for visual arts. Demonstration  of technical and Visual Skills Materials:Throughout part 1 I learned more about transparent and opaques mixing and painting techniques. At the beginning I struggled to make them bold enough. The assignment piece however allowed me to investigate and explore further both techniques in a meaningful sense. I found an…

Preparing supports for oil painting

Based on my tutor’s feedback and some further researches I decided to get some practice on preparing supports especially for oil painting. As this takes time I did those besides the exercises and in preparation of future exercises. Support chosen: paper (regular drawing paper, watercolour paper 300g/sqm and 640 g/sqm) canvas: mixed canvas, cotton, and linen Sizing: hide glue in…

Project 3 – Research Point: Chiaroscuro

Chiaroscuro  (form ital. Chiaro = light, scuro=dark) is one of four painting concepts from the Italian renaissance. The other three are: sfumato (rendition of blurred edges around the contour), unione (gradual transition of light and shadow areas), and cangiante (rendering shadows by changing color). Two of the first artists working in this method was Massacio (1401 – 1428) and Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519).…

Exhibition – Philippe Saxer (1965 – 2013) in Bern, Switzerland

The exhibition took place in the Psychiatry Museum Waldau, Bern (5. Juni 2015 – 1. April 2016). The museum is located on a campus together with the the clinic and some workshops. Available from:  https://www.puk.unibe.ch/cu/museum/museumra.html [accessed 16 March 2016] I went to this exhibition out of several reasons: my interest in art therapy (my other work area), my interest in crossing…

Contextual painting: Rothko and stained glass

I got curious about the interplay of light and color, the visual effect color can do, and the ‘accidental’ color that light brings. Mark Rothko used quite opaque layers (to my understanding) and in the context of stained glass. One early example of light and color is the stained glass image of the Prophet Hosea in the Augsburg Cathedral (c. 1130):…

Contextual Research: Mark Rothko – Seagram murals

To place my experiments with color washes into context I am looking the the large color field painting of Mark Rothko (1903 – 1970). The course material suggested to look at the Seagram Murals at Tate. The group of paintings were initially part of a larger commission for the Four Seasons Restaurant in the new Seagram Building in New York (designed…

Gallery visit – About Painting Part I & II – Bern, Switzerland

I discovered that two galleries in Bern, Switzerland had this month an exhibition called ‘About Painting‘: Galerie Kornfeld and Galerie Bischoff & Partner (see references). I thought that this would be great opportunity to open up my mind on painting and to see what could be explored as a painting (compared to a drawing). I hoped to discover new perspectives for…

Starting off

I introduced myself to my tutor. At the beginning I was allocated to one tutor  out of mistake. I was not so happy with that one as I felt he was more into illustration, something that I want to avoid for myself. My tutor is Doris Rohr (her profile). I am glad about this choice, as I’ve seen that she worked…

Exhibitions to see – My plan for Feb/May 16

28 May 2016: I planned 8 visits to museums and galleries. I missed 2 of them. But I am satisfied with my done visits. I have to see how can continue with my 2 / month plan.
