Individual tutorial.

Following an individual tutorial with Kate on 2nd December, my symposium topic took a slight new direction in terms of what I was going to investigate. Before we began, I admitted to Kate I was still feeling a little lost in what I wanted to research or where I was going with it therefore, after showing the presentation I had made including the books I was looking at with main points drawn from them, Kate advised me to explore these various ideas.

  • Begin with what is still life? An art form.
  • Someone who has spoke of still life and advertising.
  • Appropriated art works to sell things – Andy Warhol.
  • Dutch still life.
    • Replicated in advertising.
    • Discussion for commercialism.
  • Consumerism.
  • May become a tighter focus eg. food.
  • Jean Baudrillard.
  • Materialism and modern art – Jonathon Schroder, “Artist & the brand”.
  • Fusion of art history and material culture studies.
    • Henrik Hagtvedt.
  • Still life paintings.
    • Impressionists.
    • Manet and still life.
    • Van Gogh.
  • Semiotics.
  • General how advertising functions.
  • Case studies.
  • “The appropriation of art: consider the way advertisers/designers have appropriated ‘the still life’ to make products desirable.”
  • Google ‘advertising and the still life cultural theory scholarly’.
