Style and Design through the Ages

Posted by The Art Ministry Team on January 24, 2007

This week in the Art & Design Zone we look at ‘Style and Design through the Ages’. Eclectic by social evolution, British taste has absorbed much of what has been encountered over centuries from many cultures.

Style and Design through the Ages looks at influences that have shaped modern Britain, covering the period from the Roman invasion culminating with the decline of the British Empire. In Britain alone there are countless groups or clans that have informed our creative processes from the Celts, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Indians, Chinese and even the Japanese.

“With the American colonies and the wealth accumulated from the slave trade, the Georgian era saw a boom in its architecture and style. Between 1730-1800 during the reigns of four kings sharing the same name, the presence of Georgian art and architecture evolved. The city of Bath is a prime example of the manifestation of this cumulative wealth.”

Vanishing Points

Posted by The Art Ministry Team on January 16, 2007

This week in the Art & Design Zone we focus on Pip Culbert acclaimed Linear Artist  in our article ‘Vanishing Points’ 

Pip stands at the forefront of deconstructive art with work spanning many decades. Her work in linear art explores all aspects of fundamental constructions, deconstructions and perspectives of objects.

Over the years, Pip’s work has gained international attention, and her unique pieces have featured in many significant exhibitions and their catalogues, including ‘Software’ in France, Linen Line, at the Sofa Gallery Christchurch in New Zealand, ‘The Secret Life of Clothes, Artium Fukuoka in Japan and a commission for Allianz, in Berlin, a permanent installation of Seams, which runs the length 750 meters of a corridor.

“If we consider that inversion is the art of playing with paradoxes, the work of Pip Culbert is a perfect example of this.” Patricia Brignone (Art critic)

In the article Vanishing Points read how mass industrialisation, two world wars and the 60’s influenced the work of this profound artist.
