AO1 Jacques Villegle Research

AO1, Uncategorized

Upon first impressions Villages work is very messy and cluttered; each piece has a lot going and are very packed with different messages and meanings.

The works themselves are ripped up posters/ advertisements that have been overlapped onto a canvas, however the works themselves are written in french so most of the writing I cannot read.

The colours of each works are different however they all seem very bright and vibrant, this is probably due to the paper being ripped and having the white lining everywhere, this brightens up the images dramatically.

The process of making these images is harder than one can expect, due to the posters being stuck down so well it’s hard to get an actual grip and rip a large section of the poster off. These images themselves aren’t just a small 1m x 1m board they’re giant pieces, usually 6 to 7ft in size.

The movements in art that were present when Villagle was making his works were Modernism as the whole movement of ‘Ready-made Art’ took the art industry by storm and Villegle acted upon this by using other peoples posters and advertisement and using this as art supplies for his artwork.

Each of Villegle’s works have different meanings and emotions, however they all seem to have an aspect of anger to them. By looking at Villegle’s work you can tell the anger he was trying to release and express through his aggressive rips and tears.
