Pop Art

Pop Art Movement 1953 onwards


Prior to the Pop Art movement, Art was considered to be something serious and was concerned with serious subject matter such as portraits of important people, the expression of serious ideas, landscapes, classical scenes.

Artists had previously, always depicted important occasions, religious stories, portraits of important or wealthy people or scenes depicting images of the daily life of people. Images that were recognizable to the viewers of the time.

The aim of the Pop Artists was to focus attention on, and tell everyone about, everyday things they looked at the values of ordinary people and commented on consumerism, mass production, newspapers, television, movies, comics, signs and celebrity. They wanted to show people that these subjects (everyday things) were suitable, important subjects for artworks.

Pop artists took their inspiration from comic books, advertising, food labels, even food itself! Big advertisements, bill boards, famous name brand logos, TV, movies. They often actually depicted these items in their works.

Pop Artists used large areas of flat colours, bright Primary Colours like those in cartoons and comic books.

Roy Lichtenstein

Coca Cola Bottles (210) Andy Warhol 1962

The coke bottles are depicted as if they were displayed in a supermarket. The Coke bottle is a symbol of contemporary society. Andy Warhol said there is only one Coke, and everybody from presidents and film stars to the poorest in society all drink exactly the same the same product.

Roll of Bills 1962 Pencil, crayon and felt tip on paper

When deciding what to paint, a friend of Andy Warhols asked him what he loved most and he said Money. The dollar bill is a significant symbol of material success.

Many Pop Artists worked as commercial artists at the time: designing advertising, window displays, comic books, painting billboards etc. Commercial art had been looked down upon by fine artists of the time but the Pop Artists used these processes to make fine art rather than advertising.
Andy Warhol

Pop artists began to use the properties of commercial art as inspiration: mechanical sources of reproduction such as the silk screen printing process, newspaper printing process, airbrush etc to produce the look of mass produced imagery such as comic books, newspaper images etc. These things were familiar to everyone, part of the mass media environment.

Multiple frames adds to the tension. The repeating of the images forces viewers to concentrate on what is going in the work the two women died from botulism as a result of eating from the tuna fish can depicted. The images were originally in a newspaper article.

In addition to pools, Hockney painted the interiors and exteriors of California homes. In 1970, this led to the creation of his rst joiner, an assemblage of Polaroid photos laid out in a grid. Although this medium would become one his claims to fame, he stumbled upon it by accident. While working on a painting of a Los Angeles living room, he took a series of photos for his own reference, and xed them together so he could paint from the image. When he nished, however, he recognized the collage as an art form unto itself, and began to create more.

What is New Media Art?

New media art, as dened by the Australia Council, is a process where new technologies are used by artists to create works that explore new modes of artistic expression. These new technologies include computers, information and communications technology, virtual or immersive environments, or sound engineering. They are the brushes and pens of a new generation of artists.!


Chris Henschke, Synchrotron Residency

New Media
New media art is a genre that encompasses artworks created with new media technologies, including digital art, computer graphics, computer animation, virtual art, Internet art, interactive art, video games, computer robotics, and art as biotechnology. ! New Media concerns are often derived from the telecommunications, mass media and digital electronic modes of delivering the artworks involve, with practices ranging from conceptual to virtual art, performance to installation.

"Alba", the green uorescent bunny, is an albino rabbit. This means that, since she has no skin pigment, under ordinary environmental
conditions she is completely white with pink eyes. Alba is not green all the time. She only glows when illuminated with the correct light. When (and only when) illuminated with blue light (maximum excitation at 488 nm), she glows with a bright green light (maximum emission at 509 nm). She was created with EGFP, an enhanced version (i.e., a synthetic mutation) of the original wild-type green uorescent gene found in the jellysh Aequorea Victoria. EGFP gives about two orders of magnitude greater uorescence in mammalian cells (including human cells) than the original jellysh gene [2].! The rst phase of the "GFP Bunny" project was completed in February 2000 with the birth of "Alba" in Jouy-en-Josas, France. This was accomplished with the invaluable assistance of zoosystemician Louis Bec [3] and scientists Louis-Marie Houdebine and Patrick Prunet [4]. Alba's name was chosen by consensus between my wife Ruth, my daughter Miriam, and myself. The second phase is the ongoing debate, which started with the rst public announcement of Alba's birth, in the context of the Planet Work conference, in San Francisco, on May 14, 2000. The third phase will take place when the bunny comes home to Chicago, becoming part of my family and living with us from this point on. ! "

Karen Casey, Australia b. 1956 | Dream zone 2012 | Technical collaborator & software interface designer: Harry Sokol | 3 channel projection exhibited from computer, audio-visual data rendered in realtime (production still, detail) | Courtesy: The artist

Karen Caseys Dream zone 2012 emerges from the artists fascination with the relationship between human consciousness and our experience of the world. Featuring a kaleidoscopic celebration of symmetry, colour and pattern, the work is projected on multiple walls in a series of duplicated, tiled animation squares. Casey creates an immersive space of hypnotic lines and intersecting points reflecting the geometry found in nature. Specialist software developed by the artists technical collaborator uses Caseys recorded meditating brainwaves to create the hypnotic rhythm of the work. Visually it dissects and reconfigures imagery by Caseys to generate, in real-time, ever-changing geometric patterns. An interdisciplinary artist with a broad and varied creative practice, Casey has challenged perceived notions of reality, time and space and our understanding of the physical and the spiritual. Since the 2000s her work has further explored scientific and psychological themes relating to our place in the universe and the interconnectivity of human consciousness.

Pop Art & Andy Warhol

! ! !
1. List some of the key influences of Pop Artists and Andy Warhol in particular. Where did they get their ideas from? 2. What made Pop Art works different from the works of earlier artists? Think about their choice of subject matter and how they made their works. 3. What were some of the materials and techniques Pop Artists used in making their works?

4. Look at One Hundred Campbell Soup Cans, (below) by Andy Warhol. Write about Warhols use of repeated shape, pattern and color. Evaluate it. Why do you think it was made? What is your response to this piece of work - is it art?

! !

Pouncing involves pricking tiny holes into an image so that charcoal can be pushed through to create a dot-to-dot copy on another sheet of paper or canvas.! The original pricked drawing was laid over a new surface ready for the original to be transferred. The artist lled a small muslin bag with powdered charcoal, and this was patted over the holes in the drawing. The tiny holes in the original drawing would leave behind small dots on the new surface, and this provided a guide which could then be worked up into a nished painting.

Visual Diary Keep records of everything you create in studio arts, drawings,

Year 11 Studio Art Unit 1

30 January 2014

notes, gallery visits, and photographs all go in your visual diary. Keep all your images and test drawings etc. If you work on the computer you must do screen grabs as you go showing each stage of your process. These, printed out, will go in your visual diary. !

Saving your work If you plan to work using the computers in anyway - I suggest you set yourself up a Google Drive. It is free and very easy to set up. This means that you can save your work to a spot on the internet and you can access it on any computer anywhere. this is handy if you need to work at school and at home and means you don't have to worry about remember USB drives, or only working on one computer. It is also a good way to keep a backup copy of any of your les. It is private and only you will have access to your information - it is not visible to anyone else. If you already have a similar set up - such as a drop box or website then that is ne to use also. I would save your work online as well as in your drive at school. Losing les or computer breakdowns etc. will not get special consideration when it comes to handing in your work. !!

The Good Vibrations storage unit by designer Ferruccio Laviani combines traditional Oriental craftsmanship and design with the visual e"ects of a digital or analog glitch.

Outcome 1:

Source inspiration, identify individual ideas and use a variety of methods to translate these into visual language.

Gallery Visits During the year, you should aim to visit a variety of galleries regularly in order to help develop your ideas, concepts and to maintain an awareness of contemporary styles, concepts and techniques present in current art practices. Take notes about the works you see with particular attention paid to the way works are presented (what are they made out of, how are they framed / hanging on the wall etc, how do they t into the gallery environment) and artists whose

Histograms help to give digital camera users a quick summary of the tonal range present in any given image. It graphs the tones in your image from black (on the left) to white (on the right). The higher the graph at any given point the more pixels of that tone that are present in an image.

Different images will produce different results. Taking a shot of someone at the snow will obviously have a histogram with signicant peaks on the right hand side. Most well exposed shots tend to peak somewhere in the middle and taper off towards the edges.
