The defining art of posters  

 

Poster art has been a mainstay for defining cultural trends and styles, especially since the beginning of the 20th century. It was quickly recognized that minimal, striking designs with succinct messages and slogans, reinforced with a symbol, had the incisive power to penetrate the mass consciousness and market. Repetitive visual application went a long way to establishing a brand and building sales. The growing industrialization nourished increasing consumerism and advertising budgets which led to greater investment in the quality of artistic design and production of posters. Advertisers became highly motivated to research the foibles and attractions towards the purchasing habits of the public and learn how to capture their imagination.

Prior to the emergence of the electronic media, posters had become one of the premium mediums in marketing and were one of the first forms of invasive mass advertising where the audience was confronted with the message irrespective of their interest. Posters became a powerful means for reinforcing design trends and even establishing them. The most poignant visual elements of a particular genre were extracted by advertising designers and utilized for marketing.

The contemporary poster had its genesis back in the 1840s and 1850s when the printing industry perfected colour lithography and made mass production possible. Advertisers began to market mass-produced consumer goods to a growing populace in urban areas and by the 1890s, the technique had spread throughout Europe. A number of noted French artists created poster art in this period, foremost amongst them were Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Jules Chéret, Eugène Grasset, Adolphe Willette, Pierre Bonnard, Louis Anguetin, Georges de Feure and Henri-Gabriel Ibels. Alfred Mucha helped launch the Art Nouveau movement with his Sarah Bernhardt Gismonda poster, which was an overnight success. Gradually more textural and graphic elements were introduced into poster art, along with bolder colour palettes. Tight deadlines and lower budget posters, restricted to one or two colours, led to a greater emphasis being placed on design and graphics, to maximize visual impact. This led to a new wave of artistic presentation with minimalized design, which had a natural symbiosis with simplified modernist trends that were evolving at the beginning of the century.
Politics also exploited the market penetration of posters and along with flyers became an effective means for revolutionaries to be heard, which was exemplified with their use in stirring up negative sentiment against the aristocracy during the French Revolution and was also widely used by the Bolshevics with their constuctivist posters. The growth of the movie industry at this time also led to the elaborate sized posters being developed for promotions.
As a means for discovering insights into the popular trends of the last 175 years, the poster has provided a vivid encapsulation and record of the potent visuals through different eras. The spread of new art movements were greatly enhanced by the adaption of artists to express themselves through this medium.

Buddha wall carving – Xiandong Fairy Cave, Keelung

Neil Wade Photography, 2011

 

 

While updating my front page with a recent post on the ‘Art of the Buddha’, an image really caught my attention when I was searching for a feature image. This was a picture of a green Kuan Yin wall carving, which I recalled to be similar to a dream I had recently on the New Moon of the 3rd of November, which had made a distinct impression on me. This dream had a more lucid appearance than the usual nebulous haze. I had descended carved steps at some coastal location into a subterranean chamber and waded waist high into a golden, turquoise water which was semi luminous. While admiring the vibrancy of the water, I looked to the side and was startled to see a beautiful wall carving that looked like some sort of Buddha figure relief, my sense being it was of Kuan Yin. This heightened the sensation that I was already feeling of being in a blessed environment. After I had absorbed the surroundings I woke up. This dream had a resonance that lasted for days.
My curiosity was aroused by this recollection, so I dropped this image into Google Image search to look at it source and see what I could find about its location. It turned out to be the Fairy Caves in Taiwan, which were also subterranean and been a water channel. Another image of a Buddha at this location (see above) also caught my attention which I searched for and was intrigued to see many other interesting images that stood out, particularly because of the appearance of a diffused light, which seemed to be sublimely balanced. I loaded one of the images into Photoshop and noticed its light Levels layer was a smooth concave curve, not a formation that you usually see for most images.

On further inspection, most of the other images approximated this concave light curve too. It reminded me of a section of a large spherical object, which I thought was intriguing because this was during the time of the perigee Full Moon. Like the moon, the concave shape is regarded as being feminine yin in nature. I was impressed by the synchronicity and the ability of the algorithm to detect this nuance. Themes that appeared to me from the images were: moving from darkness to light, unfolding of a new direction symbolized by pathways and motion of water, solitary quests and enchantment from nature, especially large caves, all bathed in subtle light. It turned out to be an inspired manifestation of images all presented in the one place. Being able to source all the images from the one location made the curation easy.

Exotic raku master

 

Gazing at the free form patterns and natural colours of a raku pottery finish is like looking at the colourful atmosphere of a mysterious world. Steven Forbes deSoule raku pieces are no exception and present exotic vistas that invite wonderful intrigue. He introduces more green and blue hues, in addition to the typical earthy reds and orange raku colours, in the reduction process to enhance the colour diversity. He uses the raku standard of a steel rubbish bin for a reduction chamber, which I always view as a fantastic irony, relative to the glorious outcomes from raku firing.
Steven Forbes deSoule has been a successful raku pottery artist for over 37 years, creating unique, hand made vessels and sculptures, while finding endless ways to manipulate the oxygen, gases and glazes during the raku reduction technique, to achieve a myriad of attractive outcomes. His intricate firing process and use of his own glazes and underglazes, with multiple firings, leads to ‘one of a kind pieces’ displaying beautiful enriched colours and textures. “The one constant with my work throughout the years has been transformation. I find it fun and challenging to try new things, and I especially enjoy developing new glazes. I started firing exclusively using the raku process in 1982 and found the element of serendipity and surprise to be invigorating.”

Steven Forbes-deSoule

After resigning from his corporate position in 1975 and returning to study at the Georgia State University, on a whim he took a pottery class, which blossomed into a Masters of Visual Art and Ceramics.
He set up a home studio at Atlanta in the 80‘s and has been creating pots and sculptures ever since. In 1992, Steven and his wife Lynn, built a new home and studio outside of Weaverville in the mountains of western North Carolina. The entire ground floor of their home is a studio. “ I am truly blessed to awaken every morning surrounded by Natures’ beauty and feeling excited about going to work! (downstairs)
