In one of our rotations we looked at the work of Picasso and Braque who developed Cubism. They had a huge influence on Western Art at the beginning of the 20th Century.
Here are some of our initial thoughts about Cubism:
Nye- Shatter a vase then put it together without all of pieces or instructions. Like an unfinished jigsaw
Georgia- it looks like something being reorganised
Rim- It is layers on layers
Ruby- it looks like expressing yourself in two ways. Two different feelings at the same time.
Isabella- it looks like a picture that has been taken apart then put back together.
Eva- It looks like pictures stuck into pieces then put in random places.
Joni- It is abstract art and does not matter if it looks real. It is imaginative stuff rather than copying from real life.
Naomi- It has been scrambled and does not make sense.
Lily V- Everything is mixed. There is a normal drawing then adding it with something else. It is like a professional artist mixed with a kid drawing.
Lachlan: We are making two faces. One of them is different to the other one in a different way.
Angus: It is like getting a photo of someone’s face and cutting it out and putting it in different places. It is making things look stranger than usual.
