FIGURATIVE PAINTING + TRADITIONAL TECHNIQUES

Tana Quincy

12 sessions >> Wednesdays, September 13–November 29

7–10pm, Fort Mason Pier 2, Studio 217- $530

Explore time-tested approaches to oil painting in this foundational methods class. We will learn about grisaille and cool-warm underpainting, layering techniques, pigments, glazes and mediums as well as the classic argument of tone vs. line in regards to form. A variety of painting exercises will allow us to engage with these various facets of the well-versed painter’s vocabulary while focusing on the human form.

___

Tana Quincy's work re-examines the use of utilitarian materials from the vantage point of a painter. Her unconventional approach is as much about acquiring new forms of media and reinventing process as it is about composition and mark-making. Her paintings explore the dialogue between substrate and surface. Tana's love for mark-making, materials and the painter's vernacular stems from her background in representational painting and drawing. In 2007, she received an MFA from the New York Academy of Art where she studied under renowned painters such as Steven Assael, Wade Schuman, and John Jacobsmeyer. She has shown her work in solo shows throughout the Midwest and has participated in group shows from New York to San Francisco. She currently lives and works in San Francisco.
