Luigi Russolo, Dynamism of a Car, 1912. Italy. Illustrating the doppler effect.
Recently I’ve been looking at Futurism, a movement that emphasized and glorified themes associated with contemporary concepts of the future, including speed, technology, youth and violence, and objects such as the car, the aeroplane and the industrial city. It is this idea of movement and speed that interests me, you can see this force of energy in every painting, sculpture, etc from this movement. Although my work doesn’t directly link to the style of futurism, I feel its something i can touch on and possibly try to recreate this force in my recent work in drawing and painting
