Kinetic Art

Starting with the work of the Futurists, the inclusion of motion became a central theme to art, in particular sculpture, of the 20th century. Kinetic art is really a generic term for art that addresses the presence, whether apparent or real, of moving parts. Naum Gabo and Marcel Duchamp were among the first to incorporate moving parts in their work in 1920. Just a few years later, László Moholy-Nagy, a Hungarian associated with Constructivism, made machines of light and motion from metal and plastic. The undisputed leader of early Kinetic art is Alexander Calder. His delicately calibrated mobiles included the element of chance, as the works are not motorized, but instead propelled by the motion of the viewer and the currents in the room. In the 1950s Kinetic art was recognized and popularized by critics. The landscape of Kinetic art is ever-evolving, as technological developments provide artists with new ways to incorporate movement into their work.

Hammerhead Shark Compressor This product performed exactly as described and is very quiet, when the compressor turns on it doesn't make you jump like my old compressor it was so loud it startled me and I would ruin my art work Ha, Delivery was prompt and the price was the best I found anywhere. Everything was packed very securely. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

Masterpiece is absolutely fantastically prepared canvas! The surface is smoother than Fredricks Red Label, but not quite as smooth as their Blue label...right in between for a surface that can be used for detailed work effectively! The canvas support is incredible!They are very well made, and perfectly aligned, supported, and taut...just the way I like it! Big thumbs up for this brand of canvas!
