The diploma with the title "Cohabitation of drawing and painting, with paper as the base medium of the image" deals with the concept of combining a multylayered drawing and painting with which I achieve an uniform painting image on paper the diploma is divided in two parts. The first part is mostly theoretical and refers to paper and analysis of the chosen works. The second part is reserved for my practical studio work, where I created an opus of works, followed by a reflection of it where I present my authorship.
In the first part of my diploma, beginning chapter, I focus in paper as the medium of the image. I present the technological characteristics and the process of creating paper, on which depends its quality and characteristics. In a short subchapter I present the use of paper as the medium of image in modern painting, as paper has since become equal to canvas and other similar mediums. After I present Sigmar Polke's use of paper in his opus works that I am analysing. In the second chapter, through a short biography and a detailed look into specific creation periods I give a more detailed presentation of Francis Picabia and Sigmar Polke, to whom I look up to with my work and with the use of formal art analysis I examine selected works. These works I inspect based on the used materials and techniques.
In the second part of my diploma I present and examine my own work by using formal art analysis and analysis based on the use of materials and techniques. Finally I compare my work and the analysis of it to the works and analysis of aforementioned artists.
