About this event

Ordinary trees on the sidewalk, greasy lunch meals, empty bus seat. Such mundane fragments of the everyday can be found here, there, and everywhere. They may only seem like boring details of everyday life. However, if you get "closer" to those details, they have the potential to change. The boring trees, the meals, the seats turn into totally different things; they become fascinating notions or creatures with strong presence and insistence. Now, they are strange, humorous, grotesque, and even mystic existence that are appealing enough to be captured and preserved as images. With painting and drawing as the primary mediums (and a little bit of digital photography as the inspiration point), students will experiment and explore the idea of the "everyday/mundane".  Through studio practice and communal discussion, students will process individually and as a group how the "mundane" can actually be a rich source of something unexpected, exciting and extraordinary. Those who are new to this practice are welcome, as well as those who already explore these ideas in their current studio practice.
