how artists challenge traditional notions of art

Through the art history, each region and time has its own tradition and a number of artists develop their ideas with it. However, some artists challenge traditions in art by twisting around the stereotyped concept and make something new. Two artists that challenge traditions in art are Mark Ryden and Andy Goldsworthy. Ryden is a pop surrealist style painter from America whereas Goldsworthy is an environmental installation artist from Scotland. Looking at some of their artworks can see how they succeed in making a brand new page of art history.

Mark Ryden has been drawing all through his childhood, as a child it was constant activity for him. He grew up on pop culture from the 60’s, comic, books, album covers and horror movies. Furthermore, he loves collecting a vast array of objects such as stuffed animals and skeletons. He once said “They evoke a feeling of mystery in me and I am powerfully drawn towards them. It is an obsession. I collect, arrange and display them. Pieces from my collection end up juxtaposed in my paintings.” He is also inspired by some surrealism artist such as Salvador Dali, popular culture and conceptual art.

“The Creatrix” is a large and impressive artwork by Mark Ryden that was first shown at the Wondertoonel Museum show in Seattle USA, which attracts young audience influenced by non mainstream art and culture. This artwork took the artist 1 year to paint while he painted the small details under magnification. Also this artwork is full of symbols and archetypes, such as the religious connotations in the female figure holding a small infant, which is captured as mother Mary and Jesus. In the background, there are extinct species such as dinosaurs and mammoth, while there is a little spaceman underneath the woman. This represents the possibility of mystical creatures and a science fictional object sharing a strange fantastical environment. The Santa clause figure has been immersed in an underwater environment similar to a fish tank with arms like a Hindu god, which is another interesting point of this art work, the collision and mixture of different religions.

Another artwork by Mark Ryden is “Snow White”, which is influenced by his muse the Hollywood star Christina Ricci. The artist uses Appropriation as a tool to challenge traditional art. He appropriates the image of the “Odalisque” from traditional western painters such as Ingres. In this artwork, the enlarged headed nude girl is lying down on the bed, which explains the artist mixes the reality and imagination since the girl looks like a doll. This artwork has a mysterious subject matter. There are dinosaurs in the background and there is a little mother Mary standing beneath the bunny on the meat, which represents the relationship of meat, people and religion. It is ironic that the bunny is not realistic but more like animation. The power of religion is challenged. It’s asked if religion is really transcend all human knowledge or not.

Andy Goldsworthy challenges traditions and conventions with several ways. Firstly, his use of materials – natural objects such as wood, rocks, grass flowers, ice and water. Secondly, he does not show his works in galleries, they are site specific. Thirdly, he works with and against time to create artworks that are impermanent, the availability of materials and time are big factors. And Finally, he uses photography or video to document his artworks so that the audience can view them. For him, the process of art making is as important as the artwork itself. He once said “I enjoy working in a common place with common materials, and through the process of making come to realize how rich and extraordinary these places are.”, which shows how much he attaches his relationship with natural environment and the way nature grows and changes.

“Maple Patch” is one of those great site specific artworks of Andy Goldsworthy’s, which is made in 1987 in Japan. In this artwork, the artist uses maple leaves for the material, which is different from others’ because maple leaves are completely natural and they rot away with the time. This artwork is impermanent. It can fade away anytime by wind or rain, so that the audience need to capture this artwork by taking photos or videos as soon as possible, or those leaves can disappear. Even though his artworks are conveyed to the audience with several ways, it would be lucky if the audience can see his works in the exact spot.

Another artwork by Goldsworthy is “la Sentinelle Tartonne” - one of three sculptures he created in stone. In this artwork, the artist uses stones to create a form of an egg. When the audience look at the artwork from far way, it is just a stone standing there. However, once they go near it and look at it carefully, they notice the power of nature that a still thing can express. This artwork challenges those typical 2D paintings. Even though this artwork can be simple, but it is an exact solid object. It has its own dignity and it changes the looking by the sunlight and weather.

Thus Ryden and Goldsworthy are relevent examples of artists that challenge notions of traditional art in numerous ways of their art making practice and how they involve the audience while they express their own ways of seeing the world. Ryden does this through his cultural and historical appropriations and wondrous subject matter. He has both abilities of accepting something that already exists and making something new from them. Goldsworthy uses found and impermanent materials that melt, dissolve, decay and fade to defy the way the audience thinks artworks should be exhibited. Therefore, by looking at the practice of these very different artists we can see how artists revolt what the audience think of as traditional art. The relationship between the world and human can be unearthly, and every audience and artist has their own perspective of how they see through the world. There still is ample scope for artists to keep exploring.


↑↑2人のアーティストが例として挙げられてるんだけど
ひとりがMark Rydenで、前に言い忘れてたけど
実はMichael Jacksonのアルバムカバーをデザインした方w
もうひとりはAndy Goldsworthyで・・・・・・・・・・
この人興味ないわーーーーーー
なんというか・・・つまんなーい・・・作品面白くない・・・
私が年取ったら面白く感じるかもしれないけど。。。
今は取りあえず全く興味ありません(笑)
それなのにこんなにダラダラ彼に関するエッセイ書いたさ

Mark Ryden好きなんだ〜
先学期の個人プロジェクトでこのアーティストについて調べてたから
今学期になってクラス全体でMark Rydenのcase studyやるって
先生に言われてビックリしたわ〜はは

でも明日提出の宿題でMark Rydenについてのエッセイ5ページ
アートの授業って全然楽じゃないです。
だから理系の人とかが「アート選んどけば良かった」って言うの
すごいムカつく。
だって私今一番しんどい授業、アートだもん。
エッセイ多いし、作品もやらないといけないから放課後残らないとムリ
筆記試験だって、クラスで60%取れる人いやしないし
アートの授業は、楽ちん毎日お絵かき〜なんて思ってるのは
どこのボケカスだーーーー

book cover

May 15 [Sat], 2010, 21:06

英語の授業の課題でデザインしたブックカバー
あと裏表紙に紹介文をのっけたら完成〜

return to countryっていう
アボリジニ(オーストラリア先住民)のおじいさんのストーリーで
そのストーリーに合わせてブックカバーをデザインするという…
これ絶対英語の課題じゃないよね
コンピュータのスキルとセンスの良さが問われる

ちなみに下の方でぐちゃぐちゃしてるグルグルと、
右上のカンガルーは、両方ともAboriginal art

先生はみんなにphotoshop使うように勧めたけど、pictbear使ったーw
私いまだにパソコンにphotoshopないし、
photoshopってあまり好きじゃないんだよねー
だってソフトの見た目が原始的だし、vista以降でも
枠が透明にならないもんそこ気にする

今日はアートの先生が10年生のexcursionに行っちゃったので
2,3時間目のアートの授業は自習でした


これがその時に描いたalice in wonderland^^
基本絵を描くときはコピーするの嫌いだから何も見ないんだけど、
そのせいでJohnney Deppの顔憶えてなくてアレ?ってなったww

てか私、途中までしか描いてないpaintingを学校にたくさん放置してるw
いや〜ボイコットしそうです(笑)今のアートの先生、意味不明なのよ
私のpainting全てが気に入らないらしくて、全部なおしちゃうんだよ
だからボイコットしてdrawingに走ります
明日は先生にI'm done paintingって宣言する予定です(ぇ

hello:D
