A couple of instant coffee granules miss the cup as they often do first thing in the morning. With slow sleepy swipes, I mop them up while I wait for the kettle to boil. If I've managed to convey the right number of coffee granules from the coffee jar to my mug, and added precisely the right amount of sugar, milk and hot water, then it will be a good cup of coffee. But if I don't get ratio exactly right, it's yuck, which goes to show that there's an art to making a decent cup of java. Or is there? An art to making coffee, I mean.

The question of what constitutes "Art" with a capital T has been around for a long time. People pretty much agree that making a good cup of coffee is not an art but there is still a lot of dissent about certain modes of expression like writing, movie making and fashion. There is the idea that fashion cannot be an art because it evolved from sewing and tailoring which is a craft even though tailoring has been referred to as "architecture" and the draping of fabric across the body as being "sculptural". Many designers make references to art and artistic theories and concepts in their work yet are nevertheless relegated to the ranks of the frivolous where haute couture is viewed as the fetish of the financially well-to-do. And once haute couture and runway collections have been watered down for consumption by the general public then they are seen as nothing more than financial commodities and functional apparel in the marketplace.

Another reason why fashion is not considered to be art is because, as with film making, a number of people performing different functions take part in the creation of a garment, such as the designer, fabric producer, pattern cutter and seamstress to name but a few. Because designers often don't work alone to produce a garment, they don't fit with the traditional view of the artist as a solitary genius and are therefore not considered artists even though their vision of what the garment will look like is their own.

In short, there is no clear-cut answer as to whether fashion is Art or not because there are so many ways to interpret and use an individual garment. It can be seen as protection from the elements, an expression of belonging to a particular socio-cultural group, as a personal form of expression when it is worn, or in its purest sense, as the embodiment of the vision of its creator, the designer. Because fashion is so fluid and open to interpretation, it fits in with the theories of many disciplines and forms of expression, of which Art is only one.

Tribal Art

By bayem loro | At 23:13 | Label : | 0 Comments
Prior to the universal application and expression of the written word, cultures - mainly those geographically isolated from other communities - communicated in tribal art. From the Maoris in New Zealand, to the aborigines in the desert lands of Australia and the Polynesians on Easter Island, tribal art was a way to vividly express customs, traditions, spiritual practices and, more often, reverence to what these respective cultures believed to be God. It was as much a spiritual practice as it was a way for cultures to identify themselves in pictures.

Creativity is an impulse that is innate to human beings. It is said by artistic creators that life is pure creative energy; that people are mere conduits the creative force uses to illustrate itself in form. In African tribes, rituals and ceremonies took place simultaneous to the painting of tribal art, perhaps in reverence to the great creative force they understood as external to phenomenal reality.

Intricate designs, elaborate graphics and spiraling patterns are essential elements of tribal art, but the highest instance of any one feature is undoubtedly the depiction of humans - either representations of tribal leaders, their ancestors or gods.

Colour was used in abstract to symbolise specific personality qualities as was visual abstraction. Rather than creating literal impressions of nature, esoteric symbols and encryptions unique to specific cultures were used to encode or specialise many tribal art patterns, particularly in Africa.

Much emphasis was by tribal artists on the creation of props for use in performance art - a testament to the early appreciation of dram. Re-enacting significant events within tribes, as well as paying homage to the great creator through dance and fanfare, are customs unique to indigenous tribes. Evidence of this custom can be found in the variety of masks and costumes left behind by tribal artists.

Today the ruins of many extinct or dying-out tribes are preserved in glass-cased protection in museums around the world. Historians analyze and interpret tribal art in an effort to glean information about little known tribes. Ancient tribes, being illiterate, communicated in the oral tradition, so left no historical texts for historians to piece together their past.

The Ch'ing Art of China is the assortment of all the artistic styles that had developed in the past 3000 years of Chinese civilization. The painters, such as Shih-Tao and Chu Ta, conveyed themselves more directly through liberal brush strokes, carried out in dry or wet-brush techniques. The demand for Chinese blue-and-white porcelain, lacquer, and jade surged in Europe during this period. The design of the porcelain wares were made simple and the colors became more graphical, a marked departure from blue-green colors used in Ming dynasty. The objects of daily use like furniture were made from materials like wood or bamboo. With the opening up of trade relations with Europeans, the Ch'ing Art was heavily influenced by their western counterparts.
