ROSE WYLIE

I have been inspired by Wylies painting style and the use of words with images. Her simplistic paintings have given me new ideas for my paintings. I have drifted from using words with images since the Morocco field trip but I think words can give my paintings more validity and relatability. I plan to use words to describe peoples tattoo choices as this eliminates the issue of copying tattoo styles. I plan to combine these words with images of isolated body parts.

After experimenting with words and images in the Morocco field trip and being inspired by Bastiat, I have been looking at how other artists use words to convey a message. I have been considering other ways of getting across the message of raising the status of tattoo art. This is something I haven’t looked into much yet and have found challenging as I haven’t used words in art in the past but I am inspired to use techniques such as humour and mystery and develop this side of my art in the future as I believe it could have a powerful effect with the particular topic I am interested at the moment.

Delvoye is a world renowned fine artist that has raised the tattoo to fine art from outside the tattoo industry.

Signature – claims personal authorship over the work – not something seen often in the tattoo industry.

Use of iconic tattoo styles.

“raising and tattooing pigs that move from commodity status to high art status in a very short time”

“I prefer things that are not status enhancing and pigs are certainly not status enhancing”

While keeping in mind ancient tribal art and taking aspects of modern graffiti and tattoo art I create art work about my personal experiences in life. Like tribal art I think about my paintings as if they were instructive documents to inform a younger generation of what the world around me was like before these aspects potenitally fade from our society. I consider if I can raise tattoo art into a higher art form and shed the negative stigma it has unfortunately obtained in the past.

KEY CONCEPT

Site-Responsive-Art

“40,000 years ago, humans in Europe were making things any of us would recognize as art. This suggests that we were sharing information across cultural groups from different areas, rather than keeping knowledge to ourselves. It seems art was a critical part of our identity, helping to bring different groups together. In other words, symbols were a kind of social glue. The sharing of symbolic information has been crucial to our success. Every new idea we pick up has the chance to become immortal by being passed down through the generations. That is how language spread.”

Some graffiti artists believe that writing on walls is a way of contributing to the community. The art adapts to the cities aesthetics. Blek the rat uses an image of a rat which contributes a particular aesthetic that fits to the cities aesthetic. The cities endless advertising provokes people to add their contribution to the visual world around them. Graffiti finds its place amongst commercial advertising suggesting that graffiti is now an imbedded element of the city.

The end of ‘the new’: instead of originality, we have repetition, recycling, pastiche.
