Readymade art goes back to the 1910s commonly used in Marcel Duchamp’s work. Readymade art is objects that an artist selects and modifies to become and art expression of a theme. Readymade art is considered art with the understanding of the artist and not the public view of the object that the artist has transformed into art. A combination of two words, readymade arts, employ the common objects or landscapes that at the standard sight make less or no sense. However, with the alteration of an artist, the object is transformed to an art that not only appeals at sight but also psychologically. A discussion on ready-made is provided in this paper with an example of an image depicting the natural objects transformed by the artist.
The above photo shows a combination of leaves, a flower, and a cone from different trees combined to represent a unique expression. The combination, however, does not present to the viewer of the art originality since the components are all from different trees.
Depicting the fall season, the artist combined the leaves with a cone to identify with the nature and the surrounding at the season of fall. Additionally, it depicts the environment condition that is associated with a fall. The combination of the different leaves to form a single object depicts the artistic definition of uniqueness and the combination of different aspects to come up with a single image.
In its early definition, readymade art acquired the description of existing art lacking the artistic touch of a professional. The stylistic approach readymade art uses to depict the artist’s expression defines a different and inquisitive understanding. The transformation of the standard objects in the environment into an art defines the imaginative mind of an artist.
