Art and communication have made incredible leaps forward since the early 20th century. Here is a vignette of modern art’s influence on products that people would come across in their day to day.
First a look at some products straight out of Hotspur’s medicine cab…
Informative AND evidently made of real Wizards.
Hardy’s “Magical” Pain Destroyer’s label implores one to give it a go. The spokesman looks well spaced out and contemplating a life-long addiction.
She thought she was a Gee Dang duck until her keeper poured a bottle of DOW’s down her throat, now she’s shoving’ ass at the sanatorium!
In the first decade of the new century, artists began expressing an incredibly imaginative dimension to their work and mass marketing came along for the ride.
Mondrian’s work with grids in 1930 pushed magazine layout in new directions.
In a relatively short span of 40 years progressive artists would transform visual communications around the world.
I’m not underlining strange and wonderful new information here, we all know what a rocket ride the last 125 years have been. It is; however, interesting to see how the various participating artists and their movements overlap and conflict with one another. Please excuse the sparse explanations of the images in these posts. Necessarily, The Wire Posts are of a visual nature which is a damn good thing as interpreting this shit fosters long and rather windy sentences and paragraphs. Like this one.
Thank you, all for joining me in these turgid travails of art appreciation. It could have been worse, much much worse.
Now begins a three week retrospective and then Finals which will be open note, open book, open bra, open bar.
To The Moon, Alice.
