During the first part of the lecture we got given a group task to roll a dice, it did link to De Stijl so don’t worry!
Once we completed that task me got given a job to separate pieces of extracted texts and quotes, and images that link with futurism and are abstract.
It was really a red herring, Paxman was trying to complicate and confuse us, he was trying to make us all work together figuring what art and text went where and in what pile. It did help and made me understand De Stijl.
De Stijl is Dutch. It uses primary colours, which are red, blue, and yellow. It is flat and rectangle usually, sometimes square.
Artist were trying to get back to basics, line and colours, creating purity. IT was a sense of visual purity, a pure idea.
It links with abstract as it is pure compassion and its very technical.
It arranged all those elements, to create virtual lines and diagonal. Diagonal lines were classed as a big out there and different.
I am going to create a composition on photoshop. I will look at balance and harmony to create purity.
When creating my own versions of this art I did a lot of different compositions and layouts, using the same amount of lines and similar colours. I wanted the viewer to interact with the art work, so on a few of my illustrations I did the block, or colour right to the centre. as that is meant to be the most appealing to the eye.
I created them on illustrator. Which I think is personally the best program to use. For this kind of work
