MODERN OR CONTEMPORARY?

Procedure

1. Warm-up

Listen to the following information and think out which art is modern and which is contemporary.

Modern art includes artistic works produced during the period extend­ing roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s, and denotes the style and philoso­phy of the art produced during that era. The term is usually associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation. Modern artists experimented with new ways of seeing and with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art. A tendency toward abstraction is characteristic of much modern art.

Contemporary art can be defined variously as art produced at this present point in time or art produced since World War II. The definition of the word contemporary would support the first view, but museums of contemporary art commonly define their collections as consisting of art produced since World War II.

Neo-expressionism, Funk art, Street art, Futurism, Impressionism, Virtual art, Symbolism, Cyberarts, Fauvism, Cubism, Pop art, New Euro­pean Painting, Surrealism, Postmodern art, Graffiti Art, avant-garde.

Artist: Michael KIDD

Michael Kidd was born in London in 1937. He studied at Wimbledon School of Art where he gained a scholarship to the Royal College of Arts. Fellow art students included the film director Ridley Scott and artist David Hockney. After leaving the Royal College of Art Kidd worked as an art director in some of London’s leading advertising agencies before moving the USA.­

In 1966 Michael Kidd moved to New York to work as a creative director. Follow­ ing his return to the UK he began directing T.V. and Cinema commercials in Europe, America and the UK and undertaking work for British Airways, Coca Cola, Lloyds and Barclays Bank, Ford Motor Company and many more.

From 1981 Michael Kidd began painting between film shoots. Slowly painting became more important to him and more people started to buy his modern art. As a result Kidd eventually gave up directing to become a full-time artist.

All of Michael Kidd’s modern art work shows a strong imaginative streak, quirky at times, surreal at others. Kidd tends to produce paintings on themes — gar­dens, chateaux, coastal, cities, whatever subject holds his interest.

Michael Kidd says he tends to ‘think in terms of numbers’. He is fascinated by ‘patterns and mathematics, the poetry of the indecipherable’. Kidd’s modern art shows his characteristic pleasure with what he calls ‘playing with different perspectives — giving the illusion of the reality, and keeping it simple’.

Michael Kidd modern art is available at Red Rag Bath Art Gallery

Artist: Martin LEMAN

Martin Leman has been best known for his exquisite paintings of cats. He is one of the most popular contemporary British artists, he also has an avid following abroad, especially in America and Japan. Leman’s illustrated books have sold well over half a million copies and his etching shown at the Royal Academy in 1998 was an instant sell out.

Martin Leman was born in London in 1934. He studied at Worthing School of Art and later at London’s Central School of Art. He initially worked as a designer, illustrator and typographer in advertising and publishing.

In the early 60’s Martin Leman became a full time professional artist making painting his main occupation. A turning point in Martin’s career was a painting of a small tabby cat situated in a decorative interior. It sold immediately and so begun his long association with cats.

Martin Leman is also well known for his often humorous paintings of the female form and American folk art styled paintings. More recently he has turned his undoubted talent to paintings of landscapes, topiary and stones. Leman has been described as ‘the most sophisticated of “naive” British artists, but unlike many so-called nave or primitive painters, he had a thorough artistic training.

Although born and still living in London, Martin Leman has a special affinity with Cornwall and in particular St Ives, which forms the background to some of his most notable cat paintings. Leman’s design for a signed limited edition campaign poster played a valuable part in fund raising for the Tate St Ives.

Martin Leman has exhibited internationally, and is a regular exhibitor at London’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. His paintings are held in many pri­vate art collections throughout the world.

In addition to Red Rag British Art Gallery Martin Leman art work has been exhibited at other leading British Art Galleries. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the Martin Leman artist studio and like all Red Rag British art and Contemporary art it can be shipped worldwide.
