Juxtaposition in art

  1. 1. Juxtaposition In Art
  2. 2. Simply stated, juxtaposition means things side-by-side. In art this usually is done with the intention of bringing out a specific quality or creating an effect, particularly when two contrasting or opposing elements are used.

  6. 6. General Mills Corporate HQ Golden Valley, MN The desire for this 35 acre setting was to create the illusion that the new buildings were floating within the landscape atop a motionless plane of water. The design created a crisp, clean and organic canvas for the corporation's sculpture collection that was a natural extension of the existing outdoor gallery.

  8. 8. Renee Magritte….a meticulous, skillful technician, he is noted for works that contain an extraordinary juxtaposition of ordinary objects or an unusual context that gives new meaning to familiar things.
  9. 9. Surrealism and juxtaposition art plays with scale and emphasis, making the relationship between objects unusual and out of normal scale.
  10. 10. Juxtaposition and Progressive Rhythm • Create a work of art related to an unusual juxtaposition. Consider concepts and items that normally wouldn’t be seen together. • Show an understanding of rhythm by showing repetition and progression. • Progression is like metamorphosis. Think gradual change.
  11. 11. Joseph Cornell
  12. 12. Cornell spent most of his life in a frame house on Utopia Parkway in Queens, New York, with his mother and his crippled brother, Robert. From there this reclusive, gray, long-beaked man would sally forth on small voyages of discovery, scavenging for relics of the past in New York junk shops and flea markets.
  13. 13. To others, these deposits might be refuse, but to Cornell they were the strata of repressed memory, a jumble of elements waiting to be grafted and mated to one another. In the studio he would sort his finds into their eccentric categories - 'Spiders,' 'Moons,' and so forth - and file them with boxes of his own mementos.
