20th Century- Brit art

BritArt came about from a group of conceptual artists, painters, sculptors and installation artists all based in the UK. These young visual artists decided to exhibit their work in the Saatchi Gallery in 1988. By 1991 BritArt was fully embraced as a art movement and began the launch of modern British art. One of the most influential teachers of BritArt is Michael Craig Martin, he dedicated his time to finding new forms of art in contrast to using usual/ traditional art medias.

Cold Dark Matter, Cornelia Parker 1991

Cornelia Parker: Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View, 1991 The visual cacophony that Parker creates in this mixed media installation is stunning; we particularly like her use of light and shadow to.

Keith Vaughan, 'Les Illuminations de Rimbaud: Enfance (I)', 1975. I like how even though the faces have no expression you can still sense the mood of the figures in the picture.
