Music Term: Mixed media or mixed-media
Mixed media or mixed-media
Definition and background:
A technique involving the use of two or more artistic media, such as ink and pastel or painting and collage, that are combined in a single composition. The term intermedia is used synonymously. (Avoid using "multimedia" as a synonym, because that is likely to cause confusion.) Examples: Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1972), Still Life with Chair-Caning, 1912, oilcloth patterned with imitation caning, oil on canvas, and a frame made of rope, 10 1/8 x 13 3/4 inches, Mus?e Picasso, Paris. Joseph Cornell (American, 1903-1972), Suzy's Sun (for Judy Tyler), 1957, mixed-media shadow box construction, 10 3/4 x 15 x 4 inches (27.3 x 38.1 x 10.2 cm), North Carolina Art Museum, Raleigh. See sculpture. Jess [Collins], (American,1923-), The Mouse's Tale, 1951-1954, gelatin silver prints, magazine reproductions, and gouache on paper, 47 x 32 inches (119.3 x 81.2 cm), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Visual games and puns are the essence of Jess' works, which he prefers to call "Paste-Ups" because of the term's childlike association.
