Photorealism

  1. 1. By Jacqui Wunderlich, Alexis Shaft & John Fortenberry PHOTOREALISM
  2. 2. • Paintings & sculptures where photographs are used to gather information and then replicated in exact detail so that they are indistinguishable from the original subject. • Reactionary movement against Abstract Expressionism art movement, similar to Pop Art & Minimalism. • Took place during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. • Other names for Photorealism are: Hyperrealism, Superrealism, Sharp Focus & New Realism. WHAT IS PHOTOREALISM?
  3. 3. Critic Howard Smith asked me, “What are you going to call this group?” I said, “I don’t know, what am I going to call them? They’re using the photograph, they’re being very open about it. It’s photographic realism. I don’t know, photorealism. Does that sound good to you?” -Louis K. Meisel The term „photorealism‟ was coined by Louis K. Meisel in 1969. "Six Views of Edo: Shinjuko III” by Richard Estes
  4. 4. • Abstract Expressionism was the favored American art style during the post-WWII era. • Abstract Expressionism used little to no pre-planning, a lot of spontaneity and was very conceptual. • Photorealism went back to the roots of heavy planning and realistic depictions of objects. Unlike Abstract Expressionism, photorealism favored random objects and “everydayness”. REACTION AGAINST ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM “Tourists” sculpture by Duane Hanson
  5. 5. • Everyday objects and everyday scenery, use of found objects • Detached and impersonal • Geometric and colorful • Lets art speak for itself • Rejection of elitism • More cluttered than minimalism, no “less is more” • Points out commercialism of America, very satirical look • Relies very heavily on good technique and skill • Mistaken for real photographs Similarities to Pop art & Minimalism Differences from Pop art & Minimalism PHOTOREALISM VS. POP ART & MINIMALISM

  8. 8. “The L Train” 2009 is a great example of Richard’s constant use of reflection used to confuse the mind. He liked to do this with his paintings so you would question what you are actually seeing.
  9. 9. Reflections Nasdaq Window (2010)
  10. 10. MICHIGAN AVENUE (1984) As Estes work progresses throughout time, what is seen in his pictures changes. He carefully selects what goes into his pictures. From them you can see a snapshot of time—what the cars looked like, what was in shop windows, and even what people dressed like.
