Throughout the variety of new images I created by using Munger's piece as a starting point I believe that there is an even mix of images that could be considered fair use; however, some of them are blatantly his work just changed slightly with color or opacity.
This specific piece made by Gilbert Munger is a part of the Tweed Museum of Art's collection. Munger painted this oil on canvas in 1901 and it is titled Two Trees. Gilbert Munger has a rich history within painting and has traveled within the United States, as well as to other various countries. While traveling he furthered his education as an artist and learned the French Barbizon style of painting. It is clearly part of that specific style for various reasons. It has a rich but subdued palette, thick impastoed paint, and images of rural laborers, which are all part of the French Barbizon style.
This piece was created just two years before Munger himself died, and the Tweed Museum of Art is very fortunate to have such a large collection of his works.
Hi, my name is Natalie White. I am currently a double major at the University of Minnesota Duluth. My majors are: Communication and Studio Art with an emphasis in Digital Arts. I also have two minors, which are art and photography. This blog is for a digital class I am currently enrolled in.
While working through this project, the concept of what remix really means kept reiterating itself to me. Why do artists continue to use remix in their own art, and what are some of the consequences of it?
Using other students photographs I decided to create a mash up of one photo, and then continue to alter it into a series. By starting with just one basic photo, and continuing to add, and subtract from it, a very unique and abstract look kept the pieces similar with each other.
There is also a theme of winter within each piece. The photographs used are visibly from a typical Minnesota winter. There is a lot of snow and ice present in each photograph.
A concept that I hope to continue discussing through this blog are the major consequences of remix, and what may happen to this playful art style.
For the first project during the spring semester of 2011 in 2D digital studio 2 there was a collaboration of winter themed images that were then remixed to create individual pieces.
