What is Stuckism?

What is Stuckism?

Art movement that promotes figurative painting rather than conceptual art. It was founded 1999 by Charles Thomson and Billy Childish. It initially had 13 artists in Britain but has spread to 52 countries and expanded rapidly to 233groups. Several manifestos have been issued by Billy and Thomson since the emergence of the movement. Most of the manifestos promote modernism spirit and production of spiritual art irrespective of medium, matter, subject or style.  

Collage

A production art technique primarily and commonly used in visual arts where artwork is made through assemblage of forms of different kinds to wholly create a new one. It may at times include ribbons, newspaper & magazine clipping, bits of handmade or colored papers, photographs, portions of texts and other objects.

Plate

A plate is a broad, concave, but mainly flat vessel on which food can be served. A plate can also be used for ceremonial or decorative purposes. Most plates are circular, but they may be any shape, or made of any water-resistant material. Generally plates are raised round the edges, either by a curving up, or a wider lip or raised portion. Vessels with no lip, especially if they have a more rounded profile, are likely to be considered as bowls or dishes, as are very large vessels with a plate shape.

Aquagravure

Aquagravure is a technique combining several processes; including compressing wet paper pulp in a carved wood mold until the water runs off, painting the compressed paper, adding ink to the mold to print onto the painted paper, and allowing the entire work to dry.
