Mixed Media & Collage Student Projects

Ashley Margo_Book Blue & Yellow_2

Ashley Margo, “Book Blue & Yellow” 2013

In anticipation of her Spring quarter Mixed Media & Collage for Artists and Designers, Instructor Michelle Constantine shared some amazing student projects from last fall’s section of the course.  From intricately altered books that resemble landscapes to inspired uses for antique photographs, these student projects show off the breadth of visual strategies and techniques covered in the course.

In Michelle’s interview with us last August, she explained that students in the course will “work on weekly mini projects that serve as explorations of media. You will explore the techniques and mediums shown in the video demo each week. You will also work on personal portfolio pieces throughout the quarter that will grow and evolve as you learn and grow creatively.”

Frederick Hammersley, Around a round, 1959. Oil on canvas, 28 3/4 x 37 x 1 3/4 in. LACMA.

This two Saturday workshop takes the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s exhibition Four Abstract Classicists as its focus, examining the 2 primary directions that emerged as alternatives to Abstract Expressionism in New York and California in the late 1950s: Assemblage Art on one hand and hard-edge and Post-Painterly abstraction on the other.  It was in the late 50s that Jasper Johns, Red Grooms, Agnes Martin, Wallace Berman, Ed Moses, Robert Irwin, and Billy Al Bengston had their first solo shows, the 4 latter being presented at the historic Ferus Gallery, which was founded in Los Angeles in 1957.

It was also at this time that Robert Rauschenberg unveiled a large group of Combines, John Chamberlain showed sculptures made of automobile parts, Louise Nevelson exhibited her first environment, and Frank Stella, Kenneth Noland, and Robert Ryman turned their attention to painting stripes, targets, and monochromes, respectively.  This short course examines the various manifestations of these tendencies and traces their evolution into Fluxus, Pop Art, and Minimalism by the early 1960s.
