What is wood?

Wood is one of the most ancient and versatile materials used to create artwork. It has been used as the base for paintings, to make brush handles, pens and pencils, as easels to support canvas, for wood engraving, woodcut and woodblock printing, and sculpting.

Art Brut

A French term that means "raw art". It was invented by Jean Dubuffet in an attempt to describe and explain naive and graffiti art made outside the normal fine art's academic tradition. He termed it as "outsider art", made by loners, prisoners, the mentally ill and other groups of people considered marginalized. It is made without thought to presentation or imitation.

Entropy

Entropy is the inevitable deterioration of a society or system. In art, it was popularized by artist Robert Smithson, whose use of it in New York in the 1960s was in reference to artwork he considered was static and simplified. He targeted contemporary minimalist artists.

Readymade

Readymade is the term Marcel Duchamp used to describe his artworks made from objects which were manufactured. The French artist first used the term, and artists who work similarly now use it. Duchamp chose functional objects which he felt had visual indifference.
