Garage primary research

First interesting things that I found was ‘a sense of relative harmony between ancient and new age’.when I saw the garage,it looks very ancient and obsolete,however the buses were brand-new,colorful and clean. Also there were lots of billboards on the buses,it seems like the decorations of buses. I think it’s contract color of this station. The old pillars and roof give us the sedate feelings but the buses were really fashion.

The second point we knew that the buses were huge, but from a distance they looked like a row of children's toy cars.

The third point I got was the ‘regular’ .The signs on the walls and on the ground were regular, including their bus route maps.then I thought about the London buses road lines,I found the routes from google maps,the amazing discovery was the routes crisscrossed,it looked like the blood vessel and connected different parts of British body.

Even they had their own steady doing,but they travel to various places.

The last main point was represented the unique of British culture with memories that cannot be forgotten. I found some funny things about the stories of buses.

KEN CURRIE

Ken Currie (born 1960 in North Shields, Northumberland, England) is a Scottish artist.

Currie's paintings show a profound interest in the body (physical and metaphorical) and the "terror" of mortality.His works are primarily concerned with how the human body is affected by illness, ageing and physical injury.Closely related to these themes, his work also deals with social and political issues and philosophical questions. Although many of the images dealing with metaphysical questions do not feature figures, a human presence is nevertheless suggested.

MICHAEL BORREMANS

Michaël Borremans was born in Geraardsbergen, Belgium, in 1963. He lives and works in Ghent.Michaël Borremans is a Belgian painter and filmmaker who lives and works in Ghent. His painting technique draws on 18th-century art as well as the works of Édouard Manet and Degas. The artist also cites the Spanish court painter Diego Velázquez as an important influence. In recent years, he has been using photographs he has made himself or made-to-order sculptures as the basis for his paintings.

Michaël Borremans’ star is rising steadily. The artist first made a name for himself with drawings of very detailed stage settings allowing the viewer to glimpse into surreal scenarios that evoke the reality of an artificial theater. That is the essence of Borremans’ art: tempting worlds situated somewhere very distant from our daily reality.

UDOMSAK KRISANAMIS

His Chandeliers are sculptural forms fabricated from traditional Thai prayer bowls which, suspended from the ceiling and grouped together, resemble a lampshade bouquet. Udomsak Krisanamis' practice has long been characterised by his specific use of collage, creating obsessive patterns made from newspaper, noodles, cellophane and paint. Over the past two decades Krisanamis' work has maintained a distinct formal and conceptual clarity, offering a unique experimentation with the well-worn territories of the grid. While his paintings refuse to adhere to any particular context or obvious narrative, his imagery has undergone certain key transitions.

Toba Khedoori

Toba Khedoori

Born in Sydney, Australia, 1964.

Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.

Characteristically, Khedoori's works have comprised intricate details, models or architectural renderings set within the broad expanses of waxed paper or linen. This delicate combination frequently necessitates close viewing which results, then, in the works filling the spectator's entire field of vision. In recent years, Khedoori's works have introduced inversions of the more usual black detail on white expanse, incorporated natural imagery and landscape, and also taken the form of dramatically smaller-scale works than those hitherto produced. Her most recent output has also moved from wax-on-paper into oil and canvas, with subject matter drawing influence from geometric sequences.

Julie Mehretu

Julie Mehretu makes large-scale, gestural paintings that are built up through layers of acrylic paint on canvas overlaid with mark-making using pencil, pen, ink and thick streams of paint. Mehretu’s work conveys a layering and compression of time, space and place and a collapse of art historical references, from the dynamism of the Italian Futurists and the geometric abstraction of Malevich to the enveloping scale of Abstract Expressionist colour field painting. In her highly worked canvases, Mehretu creates new narratives using abstracted images of cities, histories, wars and geographies with a frenetic mark making that for the artist becomes a way of signifying social agency as well suggesting an unravelling of a personal biography.

 

Julie Mehretu’s points of departure are architecture and the city, particularly the accelerated, compressed and densely populated urban environments of the 21st Century. Her canvases overlay different architectural features such as columns, façades and porticoes with geographical schema such as charts, building plans and city maps and architectural renderings, seen from multiple perspectives, at once aerial, cross-section and isometric. Her paintings present a tornado of visual incident where gridded cities become fluid and flattened, like many layers of urban graffiti. Mehretu has described her rich canvases as “story maps of no location”, seeing them as pictures into an imagined, rather than actual reality. Through its cacophony of marks, her work seems to represent the speed of the modern city depicted, conversely, with the time-aged materials of pencil and paint.

JEFF KOONS

Jeffrey Koons (/kuːnz/; born January 21, 1955) is an American artist known for working with popular culture subjects and his reproductions of banal objects—such as balloon animals produced in stainless steel with mirror-finish surfaces. He lives and works in both New York City and his hometown of York, Pennsylvania.

 Koons developed a color-by-numbers system, so that each of his assistants could execute his canvases and sculptures as if they had been done "by a single hand". I think art takes you outside yourself, takes you past yourself. I believe that my journey has really been to remove my own anxiety. That's the key. The more anxiety you can remove, the more free you are to make that gesture, whatever the gesture is. The dialogue is first with the artist, but then it goes outward, and is shared with other people. And if the anxiety is removed everything is so close, everything is available, and it's just this little bit of confidence, or trust, that people have to delve into."

Monet's veritable artistic testament, these "large decorations" are the culmination of an entire life. Designed from 1915 until his death (1926), they are inspired by the "water garden" at the artist's property in Giverny. As of 1886, Monet became more interested in representing his garden according to the rythm of light variations. The eight panels evoke the hours passing, from morning to the East to Sunset in the West.

‘the mending project’ by chinese-born artist beili liu is a performance art and installation project that consists of hundreds of chinese scissors suspended from the ceiling in a shimmery cloud. put on at the women and their work gallery in austin, texas, USA earlier this year, the piece involved the artist sitting in front of a small black table, hand-mending patches of fabric together which visitors are encouraged to cut themselves near the entrance. as the performance continues, the piece grows as one continuous cloth and lays spread on the floor. 

the hovering mass of the downward-pointed scissors represent the distant fear and looming violence present in today’s cultural climate. the sharp blades above the artist are put on contrast by the silent and simple act of mending. the dichotomous result of the instant fear superimposed with the calming effect of the sewing creates a surreal atmosphere in the room.

GUSTAV METZGER

GUSTAV METZGER

Gustav Metzger (10 April 1926– 1 March 2017) was an artist and political activist who developed the concept of Auto-Destructive Art and the Art Strike. Together with John Sharkey, he initiated the Destruction in Art Symposium in 1966.

Metzger was recognised for his protests in the political and artistic realms. Auto-destructive art is a term invented by the artist Gustav Metzger in the early 1960s to describe radical artworks made by himself and others, in which destruction was part of the process of creating the work. The term was created by Gustav Metzger shortly after the end of WWII, during an era of political unrest known as The Cold War. The invention of nuclear weapons and their use by the U.S against Japan in 1945, left a deep impression on the whole world. In reaction against this the anti-war group The Committee of 100 (supposedly named by Metzger himself) was formed in 1960 and Metzger began making paintings using acid as a form of creative protest.

 

Metzger first mentioned Auto-destructive art in his article Machine, Auto-creative and Auto-destructive Art in the summer 1962 issue of the journal Ark. However he had been practising this form for a few years, creating his first acid paintings in 1959 as another means to protest against nuclear warfare. These works were created by spraying acid onto sheets of nylon, which produced rapidly changing shapes in the dissolving nylon making the work both auto-creative and auto-destructive:

The important thing about burning a hole in that sheet, was that it opened up a new view across the Thames of St Paul’s cathedral. Auto-destructive art was never merely destructive. Destroy a canvas and you create shapes. (Metzger quoted by Stuart Jeffries, The Guardian, 2012)

Ellen Gallagher (born December 16, 1965) is an American artist. Her work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions and is held in the permanent collections of many major museums. Her media include painting, works on paper, film and video. Some of her pieces refer to issues of race, and may combine formality with racial stereotypes and depict "ordering principles" society imposes.

Her media includes paintings, works on paper, film and video. She has made innovative use of materials, such as creating a unique variation on scrimshaw by carving images into the surface of thick sheets of watercolor paper and drawing with ink, watercolor and pencil. These works depict sea creatures, of the mythical undersea world of Drexciya, which were the progeny of slaves who had drowned.This mythology had been conceived by a musical duo of that name, from Detroit.Gallagher commented upon the process of creating these pieces: "The way that these drawings are made is my version of scrimshaw, the carving into bone that sailors did when they were out whaling. I imagine them in this overwhelming, scary expanse of sea where this kind of cutting would give a focus, a sense of being in control of something."In some of her early pieces, she painted and drew on sheets of penmanship paper (ruled paper used for handwriting practice) she had pasted onto canvas.Her choice of penmanship paper is significant, in an interview with Jessica Morgan, she says "the sense of a neutral surface that can accommodate any mark seems an ideal way of communicating freedom,"[16] which is described by her as "idiosyncratic" and "inscrutable".

William Kenteidge

William Kentridge is a South African artist and draughtsman of Jewish and Lithuanian descent who presents the struggles and emotions of post­-Apartheid South Africa through a multitude of forms, notably  his animated films of charcoal drawings, as well as sculpture, tapestry, opera, and various other media. Through the 1970s, Kentridge studied politics and African studies, as well as fine arts in Johannesburg, and was also heavily involved in theatre. This laid a solid foundation for the structure of his work, informing the dramatic and rather jarring subject and narrative, and also influencing the means of approach and production.

There is an emphasis on process in his work. Kentridge points out that the viewer can pick up on the labour that has gone into his creative work, which adds  a sense of value and honesty to the piece, as they can 'sympathise' with an object or artwork. Kentridge’s painstaking approach to making his films is a visceral part of the work, as the series of drawings used are put on display alongside the film. This ‘process’ helps to give grounding and added weight to his expressionist style, which often deals with tragedy and graphic, uncomfortable subject matter. An example of this is History of the Main Complaint (1996), which shows a figure being violently beaten and the resulting injuries in an x-ray.

Sun Xun (born 1980) is a Chinese artist who works across many mediums including but not limited to acrylic, ink, pastel, traditional animation, and many forms of printmaking. Sun is considered one of China’s most prolific young artists and has received international acclaim. While at the Academy he wanted to make films but could not afford a camera. He decided to hand draw his films and began to create his first animations. The traditional mediums of painting, woodcuts, traditional Chinese ink and charcoal drawings are often combined to create the foundation of expressionistic, contemporary stop-motion animated films. His animated film, “Shock of Time”, was made in 2006, a year after he graduated and met with great acclaim. The after effects of the Cultural Revolution have had a significant influence on the work he has created. He used newspapers from the 1950’s to be the background of each frame in “Shock of Time”. He founded an animation studio called Pi after achieving some success from “Shock of Time”.

MARC QUINN

Marc Quinn born 1964

This work, which is designed to be displayed on the floor, is a multi-part floor sculpture in blown and cast glass. The glass is silvered on the inside and suggests a life-sized figure which has dissolved in or is being assembled from mercury-like puddles. A head, hand and penis remain recognisable among the otherwise biomorphic shapes. The body parts were cast from Quinn's body. The glass was blown in Murano, Italy, with Quinn controlling the process. The piece suggests transformation, but less radically than in some of the artist's earlier works such as Self (1991, Saatchi Collection, London), Quinn's self-portrait sculpture in his own blood.

In relation to this work, Quinn has referred to the idea of creating solid form from breath through the use of blown glass. The glass itself gives the impression of a liquid and solid presence simultaneously. This sculpture exhibits a multitude of reflective surfaces and is therefore difficult to see as a fixed entity. Quinn has commented on his fascination for mirrors, for example those at Versailles, and his curiosity about the events which they have witnessed and of which they have no memory.

 

This piece consists of a hollow polyurethane rubber cast of the artist's nude body split in two up to the neck, the back half of the body suspended by a rope from a ceiling bar so that the front of the toes just clears the floor. The rubber has been pigmented brown using oil paint. The impression is of a figure shedding its skin and renewing itself. It relates to an early latex body cast work, You Take my Breath Away (1992, Saatchi Collection, London).

Cindy Sherman

Cindy Sherman (American, b. 1954) is widely recognized as one of the most important and influential artists in contemporary art. Throughout her career, she has presented a sustained, eloquent, and provocative exploration of the construction of contemporary identity and the nature of representation, drawn from the unlimited supply of images from movies, TV, magazines, the Internet, and art history. Working as her own model for more than 30 years, Sherman has captured herself in a range of guises and personas which are at turns amusing and disturbing, distasteful and affecting. To create her photographs, she assumes multiple roles of photographer, model, makeup artist, hairdresser, stylist, and wardrobe mistress. With an arsenal of wigs, costumes, makeup, prosthetics, and props, Sherman has deftly altered her physique and surroundings to create a myriad of intriguing tableaus and characters, from screen siren to clown to aging socialite.
