Drawing Foundations Spring 2017 – Resurrection Drawing

The goal for the Resurrection Drawing is to give students a chance to let go of the perceived preciousness of their work and explore what happens when you push the process to its limits.  Students were tasked with using a drawing from earlier in the semester and working back into the drawing.  Then once that drawing had progressed they then needed to kill the drawing, bringing it back to a state of emptiness to work the same image again.  Students repeated this process roughly five times or until the new composition was an effective playing between these multiple layers of repetition and wiping the slate clean.
