By late October in 2018, I started the Graphic Design school program in London, at LCCA. One of the first assignments I had to do is to visit Tate Modern Gallery and get info about what got my attention during the visit and develop sketches, presentations and photo materials about the artistic movements chosen. Well, here are a few of the photos made with my all the time broken screen phone.
Study for Gates no. 4 1967 Chryssa was one of the first artists to use neon, previously just an advertising tool. The repeated forms are fragments of the letter ‘S’, as she said when things are spelled out they mean less, and when fragmented they mean more.
The Strip (921-6) 2011 Gerard Richter made a number of multi – colored paintings using a giant squeegee. In 2011 he used computer software to divide a photograph of one of the paintings into thin strips, splitting and dividing it again and again. The marks made by the artist, painting the original picture, have disappeared. The digital picture makes us think, what happened to the role of the artist in the computer age?
The Strobe 1965 The Strobe demonstrates Aldo Tambellini’s innovative approach to expanded media. It’s suspended flashing light cast an intermitent circular shadow on the bulls-eye painted in the centre of the canvas. The result is a three – dimensional optical effect.
Everything is going? Is it a question or is it an answer, where are we going from here? As digital era continues to influence and change environments giving as the tools needed to create more and more but to what point of extend, as somewhere on the way the process itself maybe is diminished.
Tate Exchange It was my second time at the Tate Modern Gallery and I can say the exchange experience during my visit was challenging and in the same time I learned more about different artists and movements, deffenitly a go to visit if you’re around London.
