Next steps ….

You are now well on your way to developing a series of hand constructed, and digital constructed portraits.

Its now time to take your work in a different direction.

You have had further inspirations from artists such as Sean Hillen, David Hockney, and now Hannah Hoch.

Chose one of these styles, or approaches to constructing imagery and produce constructions of your own.


Constructed imagery

Chose to create either …

Surreal portraits using a range of mixed media, and “found” materials – Hannah Hoch

Joiner Landscapes – David Hockney

Photomontages of cityscapes using personal and found images – Sean Hillen


Constructed imagery

Where possible, create images by hand first.

Present these ideas in your sketchbook

Then create digital constructions based on your ideas.


Constructed imagery

Known for her incisively political collage and photomontage works, Dada artist Hannah Höch appropriated and rearranged images and text from the mass media to critique the failings of the Weimar German Government. She rejected the German government, but often focused her criticism more narrowly on gender issues, and is recognized as a pioneering feminist artist for works such as Das schöneMädchen (The Beautiful Girl), (1920), an evocative visual reaction to the birth of industrial advertising and ideals of beauty it furthered. Höch was, for a period of time, the partner of Dada artist Raoul Haussman.


Constructed imagery

Höch drew inspiration from the collage work of Pablo Picasso and fellow Dada exponent Kurt Schwitters, and her own compositions share with those artists a similarly dynamic and layered style.

Höch preferred metaphoric imagery to the more direct, text-based confrontational approach.


Constructed imagery

Dada and Surrealism were artistic, literary and intellectual movements of the early 20th century that were instrumental in defining Modernism. The Dada movement, launched in 1916 in Zurich by poets and artists such as Tristan Tzara and Hans Arp, was a direct reaction to the protest of World War I.
