Order vs. Chaos

Collection by Howard Schneider


AKA, control vs. randomness. All of the visual arts betray varying degrees of both. The basic requirement for order or control is context, whether it be a frame, a wall, the horizon or the Milky Way. On the other extreme – chaos, randomness and movement are responsible for change, variety and rhythm; without which, order would stifle life itself. Unimpeded chaos would inevitably suffer life as well. In-between the two extremes of order and chaos: Living. Managing the two extremes: Design.

Joan Miro La Femme Arborescente 1974 Etching, aquatint, and carborundum on Arches of 50 Published by Maeght Editeur, Paris; printed by Morsang, Paris Signature in graphite lower right Kandinsky, Hieronymus Bosch, Joan Miro Pinturas, Joan Miro Paintings, Spanish Painters, Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Art For Art Sake, Art Plastique

Joan Miro was an inventive child long into his 80's. His paintings are usually layers of fantasy rendered in bold color and organic shapes and line. His style is less about order and more about other types of imagined forces. Occasionally we see a Miro composition where a rhythmical association of elements (here, it's the thick black lines; the small colored ellipses) embraces unity in a spontaneous but controlled manner. Notice too, the elegant variety of proportioned areas of negative…

Jackson Pollock | MoMA

American, 1912–1956. In 1947 Jackson Pollock arrived at a new mode of working that brought him international fame. His method consisted of flinging and dripping thinned enamel paint onto an unstretched canvas laid on the floor of his studio. This direct, physical engagement with his materials welcomed gravity, velocity, and improvisation into the artistic process, and allowed line and color to stand alone, functioning entirely independently of form. His works, which came to be known as “drip…

Balanced weight, approximate symmetry and contrast (both visual and narrative) begin to define this illustration by Mick Haggerty. Fracturing within the image, imbues the overall effect with a sense of humorous sense of duality and (remember, this is earthquake country) irony.
