Description

Cezanne raised the question of there being simultaneous viewpoints in art to which Picasso and the Cubists replied with their experimentation through fragmentation. “…by reducing all forms to a combination of cubes, cylinders, and later facets and planes with sharply defined edges. The purpose of this simplification was to be able to construct the most complex view of reality ever attempted in the visual arts.” (Berger, 1965, p.59) The use of cubism and its simplified shapes and forms is an invaluable tool to convey a large amount of information. By simplifying forms and fragmenting them as the cubist did I intend to investigate ideas around the compression a large amounts of information into the one image, examining ideas around confusion through information within our contemporaneity. . Everything that can be seen can be broken down to shapes and colours. I break down the visual and simplify it to shapes and then fragmenting and merging them to produce an abstract image.
