William Morris & the Arts & Crafts Movement

  • William Morris (1834-1896) was a pioneer of the British Arts and Crafts Movement.

  • He is best known for his pattern designs, particularly on fabrics and wallpapers.

  • His vision lay in linking the values of fine art to commercial design - a key stage in the evolution of design as we know it today

Eco art painting

Eco-Art - Painting

  • David Tress

  • Neil Canning

His newer work is noticeably grainier and textured in the main focus of each piece; we are taken back to bare elements – rock, sand and wind – a technique simultaneously enabling us to see the full extent of the creative process in each intricate layer

He developed an expressionist style involving physically scraping or cutting the painted surface and then repairing it, building up layer upon layer as if to mimic the seasonal sequence of decay and regrowth.


Mary lloyd jones

Mary Lloyd Jones

  • Mary Lloyd Jones is one of Wales’ most popular and established artists.

  • Mary says of her work: "My aim is to reflect my relationship with the land, an awareness of history, and the treasures of our literary and oral traditions.

  • I search for devices that will enable me to create multilayered images.

  • This has led to my involvement with the beginnings of language, early man-made marks and the Ogam and other Celtic alphabets".

Kurt Jackson: Glastonbury to Greenpeace

  • Jackson’s home is in Cornwall, an inspiration to his artistry, which also extends to print making and sculpture.

  • Has a degree in Zoology and a deep love for the environment. Artist in residence for Glastonbury Music Festival

  • Accordingly, gives the proceeds from all of his Glastonbury paintings to Greenpeace, a charity that has enjoyed a long relationship with both the festival and Jackson himself.


Discussion

Discussion

  • Eco-art is resilient

  • Its origins are Romantic and counter-industrial

  • It is design and craft-intensive

  • It has many evolved sub-branches

  • Modernism, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Contemporary Environmental Art grew from “Arts & Crafts” and (Gothic) ‘neo-medievalism’

  • It is more strongly represented in sculpture (parks) than painting
