Joy of Work

Assalamualaikum..and hye again..Sry because this entry is a lil bit late..(ni dh tahap lambat gila ni)..I dun have any essence of JOY to make this entry but I'll try my best to make this entry more interesting..
To all my fanatic follower, I will not disappointed u next time..
(Terus bagi ucapan ala2 org berkempen...kan...)

Ok...1st lets talk about the Arts and Crafts Movement. Started 1861 in England where William Morris in collaboration with other artist, created this movement. It appealed to individuality, novelty, and good taste; but it refined these tendencies into a social and philosophical position that revolved around the critique of what many saw as the ethical vacuum at the center of England's mercantile culture. 

(Ni lah dia William Morris..dia seorang penyair dan dekorator..bkn tabligh ye..walaupun janggut n jambang dia panjang...harap maklum)

  This movement was created as a reaction that they were frustrated by what they perceived as the drift toward mechanization. The concern of the arts and crafts was NOT on the end product of design, and certainly not on efficiency, but on the PROCESS shaping the design.

(Tak frustrated pun...aku happy je...suka sgt keje ngn mesin..[tipu])

Many artists, architects, designers and intellectuals in all forms of decorative and visual arts, as well as cultural and avant-garde fields, explored the idea to create an "art of modern life". 


Encik A: Baikla apa yg patut kita lakukan supaya idea-idea baru terhasil. Aku tak minat dgn idea2 seni yg lepas dan berulang2 terutama idea si Michael Angelo tu..
Puan Z: Aku sokong idea ko kelainan apa yg kita nak uat aek..? 

 So they came out with new style; was richly ornamental, characterised by curves and willowy lines. The painters, illustrators, jewellery and glassware designers explored symbolic or dreamlike themes, frequently of an erotic nature such as feminine figures in light dresses and evanescent landscapes, but also ornamental details, floral patterns and decorative elements being elevated to central focus points. 

(Inilah contoh New Style tu.....ada style x kwn2...?)

So this is the evolution into ART NOUVEAU >>>>>>>

(Abes smua angel bunuh diri sebab tak dijadikan motif seni lagi....LAME!)

There were a differences that so important between the two movement:

Arts and Crafts Movement VS Art Nouveau
Jeng..jeng....[sound efek ckit] 

The Arts and Crafts Movement aimed to heal the rift between human and product, Art Nouveau was more interested in issues of creativity.

So from what I've already explained, the revolution is started because people frustrated with the mechanization and they want to start something new. Something that distinctive, that can create joy in their artwork.

Joy in their artwork is to add design aesthetic to all kind of new ideas, attempts and creative innovations in the fields of architecture and interior design, furniture and fabrics, glass and tableware, jewelry and perfume bottles, posters and wallpaper, textiles and lighting.
Joy of Work Charles Rennie Markintosh

(Gambar sape lg klu bukan Charles Rennie Markintosh...xkn nk taruk pix lain..konpem kne tolak markah aku..)

Name: Charles Rennie Mackintosh
Date: 7 June 1868 - 10 December 1928
Citizen: Scottish
Specialties: Architect, designer, watercolourist and scultor
Born: Glasgow
Died: London
Design Style: Greatly influenced by Japanese design and art (although he never visited the country)
Example of work(s):
(Vertical designed chairs)

(House for an Art Lover, Interior)

The House for an Art Lover was completed in 1996 inspired by Mackintosh's portfolio of drawings of 1901.

(Glasgow School of Art library 1909)

In 1896 an architectural competition took place for the building of a new Glasgow School of Art on a site offered to the School's directors. Working to a budget of just £14,000, the Glasgow firm of Honeyman and Keppie submitted a design from the hand of one of their junior draughtsmen, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Sympathetic to Mackintosh's intentions and knowing him as a student, the design was praised by the Head of the School, Francis Newbery and after being independently assessed by the educational authorities in London, was finally accepted.  

(Typeface based on Mackintosh's handwriting and lettering)

Basically from their artwork, there is some element that we can see here is the soul. The artwork have the essence of their own style. It is also represent the originality and the artist thinking. For Charles Rennie Mackintosh, his style is more to vertical design..It has a compress look, vertical lines and a high shape at his design including the font. So from the implement that had been made shows the Joy in the artworks as a holistic art that come from their own self.
