- using different artistic media: the use of different artistic media, e.g. painting, photography, and collage, in a single composition or work
The “mixed media” used includes paints, papers and board of all descriptions, glues, buttons, fabrics, found objects, photos, metal bits, fibres, things from nature, inks, pencils, crayons, markers, pastels and polymer clays, to name a few.
I found that my visit to the art gallery and my exposure to 100 works of high calibre art has really mixed up my thinking. But in a good way! lol
Then there was another painting and I've 'lost' the image but it was done in about 3 colours with skinny concentric circles that must have took a very long time and there was no visible bleeding of colours. Can you imagine not getting 'mixed up' doing concentric circles?
Reading the description of Andy Warhal's Mao, 1973, was an Aha! moment! Mixed media. Acrylic and ink.
White cotton fabric that has been 'rusted' and commercial fabrics, quilted. 2010, by elle. Knowing what I know now, I can definitely bump up my mixed media techniques!
I have learned that I need to continue to mix up my preconceived ideas as well as the medias that I am drawn to work in. That has got to be kinda liberating! ;)
