This program continues work from In Our Image fall and winter. This quarter we will examine the production and function of printed images in early modern Christian religious culture through readings, seminars, and developing skills with basic woodcut printmaking techniques. Linking theory to our artistic practice, we’ll address issues including, iconoclasm, the relationship between text and images in religious practice, image makers’ roles as translators and interpreters of scripture and religious tradition, the human desire for and anxiety about religious imagery, and we’ll explore the paradox of visually depicting that which is invisible and inexpressible. Students should expect to spend about 70% of their time working in the printmaking studio on assignments, and 30% of their time studying assigned texts. The program will include a significant writing component synthesizing and integrating ideas covered in In Our Image .
Because this program is a continuation of the fall and winter themes addressed in In Our Image , students previously enrolled in the program will have priority to enroll in the printmaking intensive . New students are welcome, but should have some existing familiarity with academic studies of Christian theology, history and/or medieval art appreciation in order to thrive in the program.
