New materials (painting)

Redirected from New Materials

In the 20th Century all sorts of non-traditional and non-art materials were introduced into painting and sculpture.

Picasso and Braque incorporated paper collage and mixed drawing (materials) with paint. In the 1960s Rauschenberg[?] included 3-D elements like tires and stuffed animals as well as using discarded materials like crushed or flattened cardboard boxes. Dan Flavin[?] used electric fluorescent lights and ballasts to create sculpture. Chamberlin[?] used crushed auto parts for sculpture. Frank Stella introduced honeycombed aluminum and glitter.

Others have tried mud, excrement, tar, soils and even blood with varying degrees of success.
