This week in Art Speak, we look at one of the most influential movements of the 20th century. It sought to unite art, design and industry, provide a universal aesthetic, and give good design to everyone: Bauhaus.
Composition VIII was painted in 1923 by German Expressionist painter, Vassily Kandinsky. He was a founding member of Der Blaue Reiter. These artists shared the philosophy to express spiritual truths through art, often in abstracted forms. Composition VIII reflects the influence of Suprematism and Constructivism absorbed by Kandinsky while in Russia prior to his return to Germany
Gunta Stolzl | Bauhaus Weaver and Textile Designer I had to pin this one!! One of sections to complete within my project is "Looking at how repeat pattern is used within the art movement historically and culturally" Bauhaus was a classic art movement. I adore the colour of Gunta Stolzl. It's vibrant and cheerful. The pattern isn't to over the top either. I am going for an interesting surface pattern however i do not want it to be to heavy.
I chose this because I liked how the two outfits complemented each other. The outfits looked like they are made of fabric. The have a very straight and flat form which makes it look very uniform. Due to the use of a skirt being worn on the left model and trousers on the right, I automatically thought that at would be a man and woman.
