Assignment 2 Preparation: Developing arguments – draft state

This part is based on my initial brainstorming and outline, my prepatory researches on Allan McCollum’s work, art history of the ‘Monochrome‘ and the relationship to today’s visual culture and appropriation of McCollum’s ‘Surrogates’. Further I leveraged my learning from the coursework of ‘Modernism Explained’

One way I do see the evolution of painting: from the Albertian perspective as painting as a ‘window on the world’ reality, through the self-critical, negating reality of the ‘Square Monochrome’, the look of the ‘void’, towards the mirror-glass as art as reflective device for our gaze on a constructed reality, like Jeff Koons’ ‘Gazing Balls’.
