Finally got round to uploading my outcomes for the previous project “Communication in Art and Design”. We were tasked with creating 5 pieces of artwork which reflect the history of Allsaints Church in Hanley, it’s present state and what it could be in the future.
Picture 1 shows pottery workers building up the church in a Dadaism art style movement, with the pottery owners not being allowed in. This shows that the church was for working people.
Picture 2 shows the imminent danger, at which point the church was a symbol of respite for pottery workers but the congregation declined to just 2 members, which almost resulted in the church closure, this is in a vorticism art movement style and was created using Lino print.
Picture 3 shows the coffee afternoons that happen after the services, with the range of cups and snacks showing how people from all walks of life are welcome in a pop art style.
Picture 4 shows the jazz evenings with the organ pipes in the back demonstrating growth, in a cubism style.
Picture 5 is in a constructivism style, used during the Cold War era in Russia as Propaganda, it shows how the church can grow, with the organ pipes pointing up towards a question mark which raises uncertainty.
Really pleased with the outcomes, the Dadaism outcome is my favourite, what’s yours? .
