No objective art

  1. 1. + Warm-Up   What do you think this is a painting of?  Would you paint something like this?  Do you think this is art?  Earth and Green 1955 Mark Rothko How would you classify this painting? Why? or Why not?
  2. 2. +  Early Rothko Self Portrait
  3. 3. + Non-Objective Art Non-objective art does not contain a recognizable subject. Rather, the artist manipulates the elements of art by using the principles of design. One thing to remember about non objective art is the time period. Non-objective art really began in post war America, at a time period where there was so much emphasis on subject matter.
  4. 4. + Why do people create non-objective art?   Abstract expressionist artists continue to use the formalist and expressionist techniques used by the expressionist artists.  Instead of using a recognizable subject matter to illustrate their emotions, abstract expressionist artists are purely creating a visual representation of what is within.  Helen Frankenthaler Nature Abhors a Vacuum, 1973 Acrylic on canvas, 103 x 112 inches Abstract expressionism For example: Instead of painting someone who looks sad, they were attempting to paint what they felt sad looked like.
  5. 5. + Characteristics of abstract expressionist work.  Emphasis on use of elements and principles.  Typically very large scale paintings.  With just a few exceptions, there are no recognizable subject matter. (non-objective)  Abstract expressionism began here in America and is credited with putting New York in the center of the art world.
  6. 6. + Color Fields   Spread Kenneth Noland 1958 Stemmed from abstract expressionism, most of the early color field painters were prominent abstract expressionists. Color field paintings are typically in simple shapes, stripes, targets, simplistic natural shapes and detach color from a description of a subject, and instead use color as a subject on it’s own.
  7. 7. + Prominent Artists  Jackson Pollock  Mark Rothko  Helen Frankenthaler  Frank Stella
  8. 8. + Jackson Pollock Pollock wanted an end to the viewer's  January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956 search for figurative elements in his paintings, and so he abandoned titles and  Was started numbering the paintings instead. Of an accomplished painter, and is this, Pollock commented: "...look passively best known for his Abstract Expressionist drip paintings and try to receive what the painting has to created between 47 and 50. offer and not bring a subject matter or preconceived idea of what they are to be  The most prominent and well looking for." Pollock's wife, Lee Krasner, known Abstract Expressionist said Pollock "used to give his pictures painter. conventional titles... but now he simply numbers them. Numbers are neutral. They  Action Painting- style of painting make people look at a picture for what it in which paint is spontaneously Jackson Pollock, Lavender Mist,1950 is—pure painting. dribbled, splashed or smeared onto the canvas, rather than being carefully applied. Going West, Jackson Pollock
  9. 9. + Mark Rothko  September 25, 1903 – February 25, 1970  Rothko was a pioneer in the art of color field painting.  Though Rothko is an Abstract Expressionist painter his style differs greatly from the erratic drips and splatters of Pollock.  For Rothko, these blurred blocks of various colors, devoid of landscape or human figure, let alone myth and symbol, possessed their own life force. They contained a "breath of life" he found lacking in most figurative painting of the era. Mark Rothko, No.61, Rust and Blue, 1953
  10. 10. + Helen Frankenthaler   Initially associated with Abstract Expressionism her career was launched in 1952 with the exhibition of Mountains and Sea.  She introduced the technique of painting directly onto an unprepared canvas so that the material absorbs the colors.  Round Trip, Helen Frankenthaler, 1957 December 12, 1928 – December 27, 2011 Using this type of painting created a water color look but utilized oil paints heavily diluted with turpentine. A disadvantage of not priming the surface is, the paint eventually begins to discolor and rot the painting.
  11. 11. + Frank Stella   In addition to painting, Stella’s work also includes a wide array of prints and sculptures.  Stella’s Color Field paintings incorporate focus heavily on line and shape, as well as color.  Firuzabad, Frank Stella, 1970 May 12, 1936-still alive Stella is also a pioneer and one of the only artists known for his shaped canvases.
  12. 12. + Your non-objective objective.  Using the paper given, create a collage which utilizes your elements and principles, your goal should be to emphasize one or two specifically.  Your collage should not incorporate recognizable images or words.
