Collages inspired by Synthetic Cubism

scollage cubista 2011

Inspired by the works of cubist artists such as Braque, Picasso and Gris, with the classes of the 9th year, we have created these paintings with mixed media. Synthetic cubism is the later phase of cubism, generally considered to run from about 1912 to 1914, characterised by simpler shapes and brighter colors.

First we prepared a background  by overlaying collage of different cards (music, newspapers, wrapping paper and colored cards …), after we have drawn some shapes and then we have colored them with tempera, oil pastels, pencils and markers. We chose some objects we usually find in cubist’s still life, as musical instruments, bottles, vases and glasses, and we’ve drawn parts of these objects overlapping the shapes, in a game of transparency and dismembered objects.
