ARTWORKS RELATED TO TAPESTRY
A French term that means "raw art". It was invented by Jean Dubuffet in an attempt to describe and explain naive and graffiti art made outside the normal fine art's academic tradition. He termed it as "outsider art", made by loners, prisoners, the mentally ill and other groups of people considered marginalized. It is made without thought to presentation or imitation.
Known by Neo-Geo for short, this movement uses geometric objects and shapes to create abstract artwork as a metaphor for society. It is inspired by several different styles of 20th century art forms such as minimalism and pop-art. Starting in the 1980's, Neo-geo was in response to the industrialization and commercialization of the modern world.
It refers to creative sentiment as well as artistic movement where the final product of craft and art is not the artist's principal focus. The term "process" in this art refers to art formation, gathering, the sorting, associating, collating, initiation and patterning of proceedings and happenings. It is concerned with the actual deed and the defining of actions as actual artwork; seeing it as purely human expression. Process art mostly entails inherent motivation, intentionality and rationale. This art is therefore, viewed as a creative process or journey rather than being an end product or a deliverable.
