I’ve been thinking about added text into my work again, I did use text within a few of my zines but as I’m not displaying them for my end of year show I’ve been thinking about using the text from the zines and using it in my screen prints.
I really enjoy how Eve Fowler used text within her work, with the bright background and clear black text on top of it.
Klee’s work was influenced by many different art movements, including Expressionism, Cubism and Surrealism and i was drawn in by his use of colour and his almost child like work.
The sixteen Jackies (above) created in 1964 and it was Andy Warhol’s reaction to the assassination of President Kennedy the year before. I really find this piece intriguing, I’ve always enjoyed Warhol’s screen printing and have used his work as inspiration many times before. Warhol selected eight photographs from the assassination that had been used within the media to cover the story about the new widow.
