Architecture as Subject for Art

Head over to World-Architects to check out Architecture As Subject for Art, a short Q&A feature I just posted on some artists using architecture and building as subjects for their artwork. The feature includes a number of artists that have been on this blog before: Lynette Jackson, Sarah McKenzie, SerraGlia, and Allan Wexler.

[Sarah McKenzie: Patriot, 2010, acrylic on canvas, 48 in x 72 in]

The intro from the piece:
To get a sense of how artists see and think of architecture, World-Architects sent a short questionairre to six artists: Lynette Jackson is a Georgia native whose work – much of it produced only on an iPhone – is heavily influenced by mid-20th-century architecture and design; Sarah McKenzie lives and works in Colorado where she paints buildings and landscapes in a state of flux; Daniel Mullen, born and Scotland, lives and works in Amsterdam where he creates paintings following from his passion for architecture; SerraGlia is the alias of Italian architect and visual designer Lorenzo Servi who is based in Finland and uses art as a medium to depict environments hovering between reality and fiction; Xavier Veilhan's interest in architecture spreads across multiple media, from sculpture and installations to film and "Architectones"; Allan Wexler is a New York City-based artist who has been exprimenting with architecture, design and fine art for 45 years.

  1. Architecture can be treated as Subject for Art or can be subject for Science, it is very interesting although it includes mathematics also as construction needs calculation.
