Environmental Art

Environmental Art is loosely related to the present-day installation art, but distinguished by its relationship to staged events and relationship to the viewer. Generally speaking, in Environmental Art, an artist devises an entire closed space where the viewer can withdraw entirely from the rest of a gallery, museum, etc. The artist’s creation then absorbs and envelops the viewer. Chronologically artists began creating environments as early as the 1950s, and in the 1960s the form became popular. Contemporaneous with the genesis of environmental art were Happenings. The artist Red Groom began staging his own version of a Happening, which evolved into designing entire rooms with color and cut-out people, where he could stage his events. The emphasis on controlling the entire atmosphere is essential in environmental art, and artists use lights, scents, colors, figures and sound to develop the space. Other leaders in environmental art are George Segal, Niki de Saint Phalle and Edward Kienholz. Often environmental art is said, in the loosest use of the term, to describe work completed in the natural environment, or work that involves aspects of the natural environment, such as Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s work does.

I've had one of these for about 15yrs. Still works like new.I have used it for everything I have ever painted. The sustained pressure is about 20- 25 psi (according to my gauge) The control knob is a bit small though, and many times I've had to use pliers if I tighten it to much and it gets stuck, so I added my own flow control. Quite noisy for it's size, and I like to work at night in my garage, so I have to be mindful of the time (for the neighbors). Because it vibrates; it is noisier on a hollow floor vs a concrete floor etc. It also lacks an on/off switch which I solved by plugging it into a power bar that I could use my toe to start and stop. I paid $80 for mine. Completely maintenance free. The cord is longer than what is pictured here. Price 5/5 ease of use 5/5 Value 5/5 Noise Level 2/5 Features 2/5 Quality 4/5 Used Acrylics, latex, enamels For Illustrations, helmets, models, fridges, small murals etc.
