6. Close Up Viewing objects 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 O’Keefe painted close up images of flora. Research appropriate sources and produce your own response to Close-Up
The Boyle Family are known for their close-up studies of surfaces
Boyle Family have worked together for more than 30 years producing an art that scrutinises and replicates fragments of reality. Mark Boyle and Joan Hills began making assemblages in the early 1960s. In 1964 they started their life-long project Journey to the Surface of the Earth, recreating randomly- selected parts of the world's cityscapes and landscapes. This unique practice continued as Mark and Joan's children Sebastian and Georgia increasingly worked with them. But Boyle Family's art has also embraced performance, projections and light-shows, data collection and micro-photography. The aim is to embrace all aspects of an ever-changing world and to make us look, hard and long, at this world's endlessly fascinating details.
