Luke Bubb For my studio arts assignment, on comparing varied artists from different periods and from different styles I had to choose two different people to write about. They were Luke Bubb, an up and coming photographer on the world scene who was born in Cape Town South Africa but moved to New Zealand in his early teens, and Max Dupain a well known and very famous photographer from the first half of this century who inspired many Australian and international people to become photographers. Max Dupain was born 22nd April 1911, after a fairly normal young childhood he suddenly met the camera at the age of 13 and became enthralled with the mechanics of such a device, it was not however until 4 years later that he later joined the Photographic

Robert Rauschenberg was born in Port Arthur, Texas in 1925. As a child he first imagined himself as a minister, and later in life he thought he would enjoy being a pharmacist. However, before Rauschenberg was able to fulfil any of these dreams, he served in the military through much on the 1940’s. It was in the Marines in 1947 that he discovered his talent for drawing and interest in the artistic beauty of people and everyday objects. Everyday objects were often included in Rauschenberg’s art, along with a focus of current events.
In 1950, his work hit a turning point; his style changed from figuration to abstraction due to inspirational influence. The year 1951 was pivotal for Edmondson because he made his first etching during a course taught by Ernest Freed, and his first solo exhibition was held at the Felix Landau Gallery in Los Angeles. His artwork is valued highly because they express a form of feelings and spaces. The artwork that I liked was titled, “Decorated for Bravery.” I personally loved this art piece because it screams out fearless and dauntless. I believe the painting depicts a historic story that dates back to our ancestors who fought for a better life.
Since a little kid he knew that he wanted to be an artist, so he left high school to attend the Arts Student League, where he learned the technical skills on which he applied all through his career. In 1916, when Rockwell was just 22, he painted his first cover for The Saturday Evening Post, a magazine that had another 321 covers created by Rockwell, including the Triple Self-Portrait. Created in 1960, The Triple Self-Portrait shows three different views of himself, three different sides of him, created after a long and hard process. The picture shows pencils on the floor, a trash full of drafts and smoke, and on the left corner of his canvas there are five little self-portraits in different positions; all these elements showing what a hard time he had to come up with the painting. At the right corner of the canvas, there are pictures of four of the greatest artists that created self-portraits in history: Durer, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Picasso.
