Erasure: Visual Art, Text, and Absence

ID : 8093   
« back to classes page
Explore the world of erasure, a genre of book art created by erasing found texts. Newspaper clippings, book pages, and any text new or old can serve as the basis for re-routing language and image into art. Develop your own visual tool kit by using elements of paper cutting, pen and ink, collage, and unique media (like WiteOut or metal leaf) in unexpected ways. We will also investigate the lineage of erased art from Robert Rauschenberg to Yoko Ono. This class blends the visual and literary and is open to artists and writers of all levels.

*Reduced tuition available for students of writing and visual art programs at UT Austin, St. Edwards, Texas State, and other universities. Please call 512 323 6380 for more information.
