|dc.description.abstract||This research paper explores the area of affect in relation to art. To investigate this area the paper will feature a select group of artists who employ the mediums of painting and drawing, namely: Mamma
Andersson, Marlene Dumas and Maria Lassnig. The discussion around these artists focuses the way in which each develops a personal language to conveys affect. In each case they use these strategies to heighten the works’ overall affect, feeling and emotion. This paper explores the area of affect,
displayed in these instances, and in turn discussed by a number of philosophers including Brian Massumi with reference to his commentary of affect as being located in the Body and affect as a sensation and event and Silvan Tomkins theory on affect as a resonance. Through this dual investigation of artists and theorists, the paper highlights how painting can convey affect. It also positions the studio work as in relation to this investigation of affect through developing a personal language in painting that is part of contemporary practice.||en_AU|
