An analysis of the critical factors affecting the continued development of fiber as an art form

Cromer, Bob E. January 1987 (has links)
The purpose of the study was to examine the status of contemporary fiber as an art form and to identify critical factors affecting its continued development.An extensive search of available literature was conducted. From this search, coupled with the researcher's extensive personal involvement with fiber, populations were identified and questionnaires were designed.Three pertinent but different populations, consisting of fiber artists, college/university and art school heads, and museum, gallery, and textile directors/curators were selected to receive the questionnaires. The questionnaires were designed to reflect the similarities and differences of the population.Data were treated to comparative percentages, valid percentages, cumulative percentages, frequencies, and Chi-Squares. Four major concerns were identified and discussed. They are:1. Fiber as Fine Art2. The Importance of Content and Message Orientation in Fiber3. The Problem of Plurality and Fiber4. The Need for a Critical Language Relative to FiberFindings and Conclusions1. The division between fine art and crafts still exists. Therefore, the division also exists for fiber art, which is part of the crafts discipline.2. Most individuals are not in favor of limiting the parameters of what constitutes fiber art in order to help gain a clearer understanding of what fiber art really is.3. There does not appear to be a critical language for fiber art except that which is technique, method, or materials based.4. The opinion of whether fiber art should be message or statement oriented is divided. Some were in agreement while others were not. In addition, some of the respondents answered with "sometimes."

The machine and painting: an investigation into the interrelationship(s) between technology and painting since 1945

Hennig, Sybille January 1986 (has links)
Introduction: We, i.e. contemporary Western man, live in a society which has increasingly embraced Science and Technology as the ultimum bonum. The Machine, i.e. Science and Technology, has come to be seen as an impersonal force, a New God - omniscient, omnipotent: to be worshipped and, alas, also to be feared. This mythologem has come to pervade almost every sphere of our lives in a paradigmatic way to the extent where it is hardly ever recognized for what it is and hence fails to arouse the concern it merits. While some of the more perceptive minds - such as Erich Fromm, Rufino Tamayo, Carl Gustav Jung, Konrad Lorenz and Arthur Koestler, to mention but a few - have started ringing the alarm bells, the vast majority of our species seem to plunge ahead with their blinkers firmly in place (more or less contented as long as they can persude themselves that these blinkers were manufactured according to latest technological and scientific specifications). Man’s uniquely human powers - his creative intuition, his feelings, his moral and ethical potential, have become sadly neglected and mistrusted. Homo sapiens – “homo maniacus” as Koestler suggests? - is now at a crossroads: he has reached a point where the next step could be the last step and result in the annihilation of man as a species. Alternately, avoiding that, there is the outwardly less drastic but essentially equally alarming possibility of men becoming robots, while a third alternative has yet to be found. While it does appear as if a lot of young people, noticeably among students, have started reacting against the over mechanization of life, these reactions often tend to follow the swing-of-the-pendulum principle and veer towards the other extreme, throwing out the baby with the bathwater and falling prey to freak-out cults in a kind of mass-irrationalism, rejecting science and technology altogether. Artists who by their very nature perhaps are particularly sensitive - in a kind of seismographic way - to the currents and undercurrents of their age, have become aware of the effects of science and technology on our way of living, and many of them have in one way or another taken a stand in relation to the position of man in our highly technological world. Looking at the art produced over the last four decades, it is truly astonishing to what extent our changed world reflects in our art - a world and a Weltbild very different from that of our ancestors even just a few generations ago. The purpose of the present study is to survey some of the observations and commentaries that painters and certain kindred spirits from the sciences over the last few decades have offered, in the hope of, if not answering, at least defining and posing anew some of the questions that confront us with ever-increasing urgency.

The artist and the technological society: a survey of attitudes in the wake of scientific and industrial revolution

Baker, Claerwen Glenys January 1976 (has links)
One of the most frequently repeated questions of our time is what is art? Since we have become conditioned to the idea that ''significant art - a much overworked modern term - belongs to the revolutionary avant-garde, artists carry their search for the new at all costs into the field of non art. P.1

The multiple image in art : a personal response

Swift, Anthony J M January 1976 (has links)
The development of this thesis is akin to that of a painting. It is subject to various influences that have evoked ideas and each idea has stimulated other ideas, thus the continuity could have gone beyond the bounds of this work. It is not so much an amalgamation of similar ideas but a development of diverse ideas which have, once composed, a common factor - the Multiple Image. Image refers to some paintings that have been made or part of them, a photograph, a film, a subject visualized in the mind or a complex reforms which is suggestive. Multiple refers to anything that relatively repeats itself, has facsimilies of itself, triptychs, polyptychs or is a conglomeration of ideas in a work of art. Intro., p. 1.

Walter Battiss and the golden age a modernist project

Lutrin, Deborah Lee 19 May 2014 (has links)
The work o f the South African artist Walter Battiss has in the existing literature been analysed and discussed in relation to his biography or in general descriptive terms. In contrast my project aims at revealing the confluence of the Modernist avant-garde notions of the “Primitive” and the anthropological project in Battiss’ work.

The decorative in twentieth century art: a story of decline and resurgence.

Gaunt, Pamela Mary, School of Art History/Theory, UNSW January 2005 (has links)
This thesis tracks the complex relationship between visual art and the decorative in the Twentieth Century. In doing so, it makes a claim for the ongoing interest and viability of decorative practices within visual art, in the wake of their marginalisation within Modernist art and theory. The study is divided into three main sections. First, it demonstrates and questions the exclusion of the decorative within the central currents of modernism. Second, it examines the resurgence of the decorative in postmodern art and theory. This section is based on case studies of a number of postmodern artists whose work gained notice in the 1980s, and which evidences a sustained engagement with a decorative or ornamental aesthetic. The artists include Rosemarie Trockel, Lucas Samaras, Philip Taaffe, and several artists from the Pattern and Decoration Painting Movement of the 1970s. The final component of the study investigates the function and significance of the decorative in the work of a selection of Australian and international contemporary artists. The art of Louise Paramor, Simon Periton and Do-Ho Suh is examined in detail. In addition, the significance of the late work of Henri Matisse is analysed for its relevance to contemporary art practice that employs decorative procedures. The thesis put forward is that an historical reversal has occurred in recent decades, where the decorative has once again become a significant force in experimental visual art.
