Art of the Untrained, or So You Would Think

This is a quick update of something I'm learning in my HoMA class right now. With two hours before my exam. But Karel Appel is an artist of the movement COBRA which was an abbreviation for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam. They looked to a reductionist method of stripping out all that is needed to represent something and seen clearly in Appel's work there is a lot missing, but you get the idea.

I just love the forms of the children with such simple, straightforward iconographic sort of speech through the art.





































This one is my favourite.

Brain Forget

I was on the way to my aunt's this past weekend and this phrase popped into my head when I was making a note about something I had to ask her.

We will be our own demise.

I always think about the catastrophe that will be the end of us humans, as the meteor was for the dinos. We are blinded by the endless cycle of consumerism. Then one day the glittery façade of our world will start to tarnish and fall apart.

Sketchy

Thought about posting some of my sketch book pages after seeing my roommate and fellow roommate Sasha Foster post some of hers intermittently. So here you go, enjoy the journey through my raw brain.

In a fit of love for typography and fonts.









Also another thing that came to mind when I heard the phrase "jump on it" in my head.
