What Is Arts Or Architecture?
Art and architecture have a deep connection that unites them through their design, their designer, and their individual meanings. Both are created using the same organizing principles, the same visual elements, and the same engagement of the senses. Art and architecture both have meaning.
Architecture as Subject for Art
At World-Architects we are big fans of art with an architectural twist, so we decided to focus on some artists who look to architecture and building as subjects for their paintings, sculptures, photographs, installations and films.
To get a sense of how artists see and think of architecture, World-Architects sent a short questionnaire 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.
