  • 6. Rodchenko’s Style of Art & Photography - Used single lines to construct a simplistic design - Angles are used to create a abstract look with ordinary objects - By the use of line, it allowed him to exclude colour, form, and composition - High contrast lighting in his photographs, creates dynamic shadows and depth -Majority of his photographs were portraits, landscapes or architecture Breakthrough: Alexander Rodchenk Pioneer Girl, 1930
  • 7. Constructivism : Refers to non-representational construction of sculpture and painting. The artists linked art with concrete and tangible ideas; instead of abstract ideas.
  • 8. Constructivism : - A movement in modern art originating in Moscow in 1920 - Materialistic mechanical machine-like art - Addresses issues about reality and life - Uses industrial materials such as glass, sheet metal, and plastic - Objects are nonrepresentational, and often geometric shapes
  • 9. Rodchenko’s Contribution to Constructivism - In 1918 and 1921 Rodchenko became interested through the arrangement of flat geometric shapes on a two-dimensional surface; he then created three-dimensional sculptures. These constructions were made from various materials, including wood, tin, and cardboard. - In 1920, Hanging Construction was one of the first constructed sculptures in Russia to include moving parts. In this work Rodchenko arranged a series of intersecting and concentric circles of wood that hung freely to be moved by air Alexander Rodchenko. Hanging Construction, 1920
  • 10. Alexander Rodchenko’s Photography "One has to take several different shots of a subject, from different points of view and in different situations, as if one examined it in the round rather than looked through the same key-hole again and again.”-Rodchenko - He often shot his subjects from odd angles; usually from high above as an aerial view or from a low angle, he did this to shock his viewers - Most of his work was abstract - His images eliminated unnecessary detail, emphasized dynamic diagonal composition, and was concerned with the placement and movement of objects Alexander Rodchenko Dynamo Soccer Club, Red Square 1935
  • 11. Alexander Rodchenko’s Photography - He photographed stairs, buildings, and overhead wires that created constructivist linear structures -The contrast between light and dark, was also one of Rodchenko‟s approaches towards photography Alexander Rodchenko. Fire-escape ladder, 1925.
  • 12. Rodchenko‟s use of contrast between light and dark, creates a dramatic photograph and a chiaroscuro effect in his photographs. This helped to show the form of his subjects, and add depth and volume. Alexander Rodchenko. Young Woman with Leica, (vintage gelatin silver print) 1934 Alexander Rodchenko. Staircase, 1930
  • 13. Through the use of both high and low angles, Alexander Rodchenko adds interest and makes an ordinary object look more abstract. It changes the approach of our view of how we interpret everyday items and transforms the ordinary to the extraordinary. Alexander Rodchenko. Radio Antenna, 1930 Alexander Rodchenko. House in Miasnitzkaya Street, 1925

Vladimir Tatlin: 1885 - 1953 -Ukrainian sculptor and painter - In 1914, he became the leader of a group of Moscow artists who applied engineering techniques to sculpture construction; a movement which then developed into Constructivism -He used iron, glass, wood and wire in the nonrepresentational constructions that he created - He inspired Alexander Rodchenko Vladimir Tatlin.
