HISTORY OF “COLLAGE” IN THE FORM OF “COLLAGE”
The invention and introduction of collage in painting has been the equivalent of a detoxification cure. Thanks to it, painters have been spared, for a moment, from the hypnotic servitude of paste and brush. They have freed their hand, their eyes and their spirit from the charms, too bewitching, of the color contained in a tube. Strange thing, and to which not enough attention has been paid, they have entered the realm of raw matter.
COLLAGE ART OF THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY
It did not take Juan Gris to understand that his approach, very complex, to visual appearances had to be accommodated, through the new modality of collage, to a more direct expression and, in 1914, we see him working almost exclusively for such a procedure. But while his two predecessors usually cut paper into rectangle or other elementary forms, Gris applied it to his paintings – Paints, not drawings – according to a much more complex and consciously artistic plan, using all luck of fragments of papers meticulously cut and crisscrossed like a puzzle arranged in the shape of saw teeth. In the program of futurism, and especially in the manifesto of the sculpture, there are certain indications that justify the practice of collage before its same appearance. It was Boccioni who, rising against the old noble materials (the bronze and the marble), incited the young artists to use all the materials of daily use to leave in their works an indispensable current character. The futuristic collage, properly so, will not appear except in the newspaper clippings and wrapping paper that, from 1912, Boccioni incorporates his paintings.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE AN EXPERT
PAINTER TO GET AN EFFECTIVE PICTURE ON CANVAS
By applying different techniques and using different materials you get very beautiful pictures on canvas.
Collage is a technique that is formed by the adhesion of various materials on the substrate.
Using a gel transfer with the help of which we transfer pictures from a magazine or a photocopy to a canvas, we get original and interesting images.
If you have the time and the willingness you experiment, the collage is like created for it.
Just transfer the gel to transfer pictures from a magazine to a canvas, to stick a few dummies, lace or other materials.
To end, with acrylic colors you will easily complete the collage.
You do not need scissors. Allow your kid to square the collage of the paper with his hands and shaping it. By swapping and joining and gluing onto the surface of the paper, new shapes and colorful landscapes are created.
A FEW GREAT ARTISTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE COLLAGE
Beyond the law of chance of Surrealism and Schwitters, mere principle of order, with Rauschenherg and Johris one enters the limits of pure randomness, of an unconscious indistinction between the aesthetic phenomenon and all other phenomena, whether they belong to the particular existence of the artist as well as that of the world. It is very significant that the pop current is directly related to the so-called random music. The relation of the painting of Rauschenberg and Johris with the music of J. Cage is evident, predisposed to admit all the sonorous eventualities. Impossible to enumerate here the countless collages realized by the abstract painters of all the countries. The interest that in Germany lent the Bauhaus to the diversity of materials gave rise to a multitude of collages alluding to the age of the machine.
COLLAGE IS AN ARTISTIC TECHNIQUE
The term applies mainly to painting, but by extension can refer to any other artistic manifestation, such as music, film, literature or video clip. College comes from the French coller, which means to hit.
It has its Origin in China, about two thousand years ago. At that time the papers were glued with glue of vegetable or animal origin. You can still see the oldest collages of the twelfth century, of Japanese origin, where you can see torn papers of different colors decorating manuscripts. In the thirteenth century, the Persians used this technique to decorate the covers of books. During the seventeenth century, collage becomes a fashionable pastime. The craftsmen made small paintings, where they represented silhouettes of writers, musicians, maidens, etc.
THE TERM COLLAGE
A collage, in short, is an assembly of varied components that acquire a tone of unity. This type of works is frequent in the plastic arts: Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse are some of the artists who created famous collages.
