Saatchi & Saatchi #1

Saatchi & Saatchi #1

Sharing Art

The other day I went to the Saatchi & Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, London, where they have Post Pop: East Meets West.

This is how the exhibition is described:  

East Meets West examines why of all the twentieth century’s art movements, Pop art has had such a  powerful influence over artists from world regions that have had very different and sometimes opposing ideologies.

Widely regarded as one of the most significant art movements of the last century, Pop Art exploited identifiable imagery from mass media and everyday life to reflect on the nature of the world we live in.  This exhibition examines the relationship between western Pop Art and its lesser-known eastern counterparts including “Sots Art” in the Soviet Union and “Political-Pop” or “Cynical Realism”, which has flourished in Greater China since the turn of the twenty-first century.

I certainly love art in all it’s forms and as such have decided to share my experience with you.  Online give us the opportunity to share the places we go to and the things we see, I for one would love to see some of the Exhibitions you might go to.  I will post over the next few days the photos I took at the Exhibition, a series of Posts, called Saatchi & Saatchi # (whatever it is).

If you want to backtrack and look over past posts you will find it under my Arty Farty link here – Arty Farty

The photos you see below I thought apt for New Years Day, the bubbles reminiscent I am sure of all the champers quaffed over the last 24hrs.  I could not find the history of this in the book, no idea how the bubble pictures were achieved, but  think they are fascinating and might just have to go back again to find out how they were done.

        Photo shop. They probably blended and manipulated two images. My guess anyway.

          yes maybe but i am not sure, most of these artists created things physically rather than manipulating through photo editing so i still wonder xx

    Justine – I could not stop staring at these!! They take on so many dimensions from microscopic atoms to the universe bubbling at inception. They are absolutely mesmerizing (and that’s not my champagne talking!)
