QUESTION 6. CLOSE UP Viewing subjects close up has provided inspiration for many artists, designers and craftspeople. The Boyle Family are known for their close-up studies of surfaces. Photographer Andreas Feininger studied the structure of natural objects. Craftsperson Heather Knight makes ceramic artwork inspired by the textures of natural forms, and Georgia OKeeffe painted close-up images of flora.
The Boyle Family The Boyle Family are a family of collaborative artists based in London Their aim continues to be to try & make art that does not exclude anything as a potential subject. Over the years, some of the subjects being: earth, air, fire and water; animals, vegetables and minerals; insects, reptiles and water creatures; human beings and societies. The media they have worked in have included: performances and events, films and projections, sound recordings, photography, electron-microphotography, drawing, assemblage, painting, sculpture and installation. www.boylefamily.co.uk
Heather Knight She produces porcelain wall hangings, bowls, and vases that are three-dimensional takes on fungi, sea creatures, seedpods, fruit skin, and more. Nature inspires her, but what makes Knights work so captivating is how she isolates textures and plays with scale, giving her creations a sometimes-shocking, always-intriguing microscopic look. The dishes and tiles are mostly all white, though some of the bowls are glazed pale blue, yellow, or green on the inside. We sense your collection growing already. www.heatherknightceramics.com
Georgia OKeefes Georgia OKeefes work is unique because the viewpoint she chooses is a close up one as though seen through a magnifying glass or zoom lens of a camera. Flowers seen from this perspective often take on the appearance of other things and are not always recognisable at first glance www.georgiaokeefe.com
