|Opis:||Master thesis, titled Combined techniques of relief print - Collage in printmaking, is divided into two parts. In the first part, the phenomenon of collage in art, its history and its development are presented through artistically theoretical aspect.The focus is on the most noticeable artists in various artistic movements of the 20th century, who dealt with the collage, developed it, improved it and expressed their sociopolitical beliefs through it, on various artistic areas.
The second part of the master's thesis is concentrated on the research on collage in the field of printmaking. I tried to present collage in printmaking as an autonomous artistic genre and as an experiment in artistic creation. First, a wider area of printmaking is covered and some of the artists, especially those of younger generation, who are dealing with collage creations, are stated. Then, the thesis focuses on the relief printing techniques and the issues with collage, that I came across while creating my own work in techniques such as linocut, collagraph printing, seal printing, printing with a movable stencil and mutual combination of those, are presented through a practical artistic aspect. Different materials and methods of matrix processing were used while creating.
Consciously, I made the use of manual process of making and impressing matrices, since such work process allows indispensable options of articulating art forms and specific artistic language.
Additionally, the comparison of the works of the artist Lojze Spacal with my own works is presented in the second part of the thesis, whereby the works have been explained in terms of collage, artistic issues and printmaking techniques. Furthermore, the matrix, not only as a basis from which we impress, but also as a final collage product, is discussed.|
