Theatre Art-eighth day

In this day, I researched some motif for makeup and then I drew them. And then I tried to do makeup on my face myself. But it was so hard, because I’ve never tried makeup. It was first time in my life. So my friend Yu Jin helped me. She is absolutely professional. I couldn’t do that if she didn’t help. With her help, I got good result in this project. Through this project, I have known new area of design. Overall, Theatre Art was very interesting and has lot of fun. If I get a chance to study this subject someday, I will do this. I wasn’t to learn about this more.

Minimalism

  • -The brief history of minimalist.

Minimalism is something we take for granted. The idea that there is virtue in stripping away, that simplicity can be beautiful, and give rise to its own special kind of complexity, is one that feels as old as the world itself – but it’s relatively new.

In music in particular, minimalism was the single most important idea of the last century, the one that made possible virtually all that we now listen to and hold dear, from punk and techno to ambient and grime. Minimalism wasn’t just a movement, it was a paradigm shift: it brought about a sea change in the way that sound is made, heard and thought of.

The first half of the 20th century had seen classical music back itself into a corner. In trying to break with tradition, “serialist” composers like Arnold Schoenberg and Pierre Boulez pursued atonality and dissonance. Technically impressive, the resulting work was also incredibly ugly; radical, certainly, but unlistenable. The real revolution would come later, and would be a whole lot easier on the ears.

  • -Discuss 2 minimalist work

-The first work is Jil Sander’s collection. It has a simple silhouette and colour match.

-I don’t know exactly what is the second one, it shows minimalist interior very well. We can see everything very easy, there are enough empty place and only black and white colour are used.

 

  • -Influence on today.

Minimalist has influenced on many different part of world such as fashion, architecture, interior, house stuff even in art. Nowadays, people make something very simple and without too much colour.

  • -overall feeling

I like minimalism. Because it is not make me confuse(?). When I see some kind of minimalist, I feel comfortable. Also case of fashion, it is easy to dress up with simple style and solid colour.

Pop Art

  • A brief history of pop art

-Pop Art is an art movement that emerged in the mid-1950s inBritain and in the late 1950s in the United States. Pop Art presented a challenge to traditions of fine art by including imagery from popular culture such as advertising and news. In Pop Art, material is sometimes visually removed from its known context, isolated, and/or combined with unrelated material. The concept of Pop Art refers not as much to the art itself as to the attitudes that led to it.

Pop Art characterised a sense of optimism during the post war consumer boom of the 1950’s and 1960’s. It coincided with the globalisation of pop music and youth culture, personified by Elvis and The Beatles. Pop Art was brash, young and fun and hostile to the artistic establishment. It included different styles of painting and sculpture from various countries, but what they all had in common was an interest in mass-media, mass-production and mass-culture. It is widely interpreted as a reaction to the then-dominant ideas of abstract expressionism, as well as an expansion upon them. And due to its utilisation of found objects and images it is similar to Dada. Pop Art aimed to employ images of popular as opposed to elitist culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any given culture, most often through the use of irony. It is also associated with the artists’ use of mechanical means of reproduction or rendering techniques.

Advertising, product labelling and logos figure prominently in the imagery chosen by pop artists, like in the Campbells Soup cans, by Andy Warhol. Even the labelling on the shipping box containing retail items has been used as subject matter in Pop Art, for example in Warhol’s Campbell’s Tomato Juice Box 1964, or his Brillo Soap Box sculptures.

Andy Warhol is one of the best-known artists associated with Pop Art. His images of Mick Jagger, Marilyn Monroe and Campbell’s Soup cans to name but a few have become household images, reprinted onto t-shirts, posters, mugs and recognised by people across the globe.

It is perhaps surprising that a Pop Art movement came out of London before it convincingly burst onto the art scene in America.  After all, it is the American artist Andy Warhol who has become synonymous with the movement known as Pop Art.   It was however, Richard Hamilton and Eduardo Paolozzi, as some of the founding members of the Independent Group(an artistic and literary collective that met regularly at the ICA in London between 1952 and 1955) that were the forerunners to British Pop Art and the transatlantic Pop Art movement.  Richard Hamilton is often cited as the founder of British Pop Art. Others consider the conversations between Hamilton and Paolozzi to have kick-started the transatlantic art movement now known as Pop Art.

Yet others insist ‘American Pop Art’ evolved of its own accord and differently from its UK counterpart. It is argued it was both a development of and a reaction against Abstract Expressionist painting, which was the first American art movement to achieve global acclaim. However, by the mid-1950’s, many felt it had become too introspective and elitist.

American Pop Art evolved as an attempt to reverse the elitist and abstract trend by reintroducing the image as a structural device in painting, to pull art back from the obscurity of abstraction into the real world again. This was a model that had been tried and tested before. Picasso had done something similar forty years previously when he collaged ‘real world’ printed images onto his still life works when he was considering if his work was becoming too abstract.

Around 1955, two remarkable artists emerged who would lay the foundations of a bridge between Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. They were Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, the forerunners of American Pop Art.

It is also evident that the American Abstract Impressionist movement had its influence on the British Pop Art movement too. Sir Peter Blake produced works based on the Union Jack (Union Flag 3 (Black) – below left), clearly influenced by Jasper John’s Stars & Stripes Flag (above left), and Hamilton’s collage work (Collage of the White Album, 1968 – below right)) is reminiscent of Rauschenberg’s in the 1960’s.

 

  • -Discuss major pop artists and compare 2 paintings of them.

-Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol  was an American artist who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture, and advertisement that flourished by the 1960s. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became a renowned and sometimes controversial artist. His art used many types of media, including hand drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silk screening, sculpture, film, and music. His studio, The Factory, was a well known gathering place that brought together distinguished intellectuals, drag queens, playwrights, Bohemian street people, Hollywood celebrities, and wealthy patrons. He managed and produced The Velvet Underground, a rock band which had a strong influence on the evolution of punk rock music. He founded Interview magazine and was the author of numerous books, including The Philosophy of Andy Warhol and Popism: The Warhol Sixties. He is also notable as a gay man who lived openly as such before the gay liberation movement, and he is credited with coining the widely used expression “15 minutes of fame”.

-Lichtenstein

Roy Fox Lichtenstein was an American pop artist. During the 1960s, along with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and James Rosenquist among others, he became a leading figure in the new art movement. His work defined the premise of pop art through parody. Inspired by the comic strip, Lichtenstein produced precise compositions that documented while they parodied, often in a tongue-in-cheek manner. His work was influenced by popular advertising and the comic book style. He described pop art as “not ‘American’ painting but actually industrial painting”. His paintings were exhibited at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York City.

-There’s paintings are looks similar but not 100%. Lichtenstein’s painting is more look like cartoon. In contrast, Warhol’s painting is look like poster and it has more natural colour but in Lichtenstein’s painting I can see more clear colour. I like Warhol’s painting more. Because, for me, It is more looks like an art.

 

  • -Discuss pop arts influence on modern art and the world today.

Pop art is used in many part of the world such as theatre, fashion, design, cartoon, advertising. Basically, I don’t really like pop art, but it has became important part of art. The reason why I don’t really like pop art is I don’t like using too many kind of colour and vivid colour. It makes me confuse. Nevertheless, pop arts influence on different part of society in good way.

Theatre Art-fifth day

Today, I made a mind map about costume which connects with my set design and I researched about this on the Internet. It was not really hard. But, I worried about making costume because my design is really oriental thing, so It’s hard to find suitable materials in this country. Without these, every thing was fun.

Abstract Expressionist movement.

  • 1. Abstract Expressionist movement is applied to a movement in American painting that flourished in New York after World War 2.(1943-1965)
  • The artist’s expressive art portrayed emotion, shaped bu Surrealism. This new style fitted to the post-war mood of anxiety and trauma.
  • The instability in Europe in the 1930s brought several leading Surrealists to New York, and many of the Abstract. Expressionists were influenced by the style and its focus on the unconscious. Shaping their understanding of painting itself as a struggle between self-expression and the chaos of the unconscious.
  • Jackson Pollock is the most well-known Abstract Expression, famous for his mural-sized action paintings.
  • 2. 2 of Abstract Expressionist artists
  • Barnett Newman  was an American artist. He is seen as one of the major figures in abstract expressionism and one of the foremost of the color field painters. His paintings are existential in tone and content, explicitly composed with the intention of communicating a sense of locality, presence, and contingency.Newman-Who's_Afraid_of_Red,_Yellow_and_Blue.jpg
  • Arshile Gorky was an Armenian-born American painter, who had a seminal influence on Abstract Expressionism. He spent most his life as a national of the United States. Along with Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning, Gorky has been hailed as one of the most powerful American painters of the 20th century. As such, his works were often speculated to have been informed by the suffering and loss he experienced of the Armenian Genocide.Gorky-The-Liver.jpg

Surrealism

  • The Surrealist movement started in Europe in the 1920’s.
    • World War I scattered the writers and artists who had been based in Paris, and in the interim many became involved with Dada, believing that excessive rational thought and bourgeois values had brought the conflict of the war upon the world. The Dadaists protested with anti-art gatherings, performances, writings and art works.
    • They were strongly influenced by Sigmund Freud and his theories about the unconscious.
    •  During the war, Andre Breton, who had trained in medicine and psychiatry, served in a neurological hospital where he used Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic methods with soldiers suffering from shell-shock.

 

  • My favorite surrealism artists are Rene Magritte and Salvador Dali. Because I don’t know about other artists well.
  • I drew automated drawing today, It was so easy. I found shapes of an elephant and a snail. It was fun. I didn’t need to think during the drawing.
