When compared to Van Gogh’s chaos of lines and swirls, Sol LeWitt’s perfectly formed horizontal, diagonal and vertical lines show disorder that can be controlled and explained. Another difference is that Van Gogh painted all his pieces yet LeWitt designed his pieces but others painted them. * * * * * * * * * After viewing Las Meninas”The Maids of Honor” it is a very complex painting for there is several focal points within it. What actually is the major focal point of this painting? There
It also intensifies the tragic death of St John the Baptist and increases the dramatic impact of the painting. The dark background really make the figures stand out in the painting, it immediately grabs the audience’s attention as there is nothing to distract the audience in the background. The painting shows the main focus is the figures of both Salome and Head of St John with their soft skin tones that deeply contrast with the dark background. While the arms of the mysterious man are not the focus as the right arm is cloaked in the mysterious shadow and almost unseen. You could take notice of the man by his white sleeve on his left arm which is extending from the right side of the border holding the decapitated head by the hair.
The first was the drawing he was working on the wall and the second was the Universal Cell. Matthew Ritchie states that “drawing is a central component to his artistic practice.” The drawing he creates on the wall is a very dynamic piece because of the size of the piece. The piece seems to evoke a sense of chaos and peace. The drawing seems chaotic because of the way the lines intertwine with each other. It also seems to evoke some sort of peace within the drawing because of the fluidity of the lines.
Almost like he is creating a movie with words, Diaz paints a picture for his readers with every sentence. Using slang and street words it he gives you a front seat to living in an urban city. Critics were not accustom to Latino authors with this sort of style and detailed writing. “Diaz’s style is lucid and often funny” Diaz’s intelligent writing style was somewhat easy to understand even though he was using slang some of the time. A smooth author created sentences and phrases that made strong connections with urban and domestic lifestyles.
David is very famous for his work of art called Oath of the Horatti. In this picture you see David trying to show off the bravado in the scene which many artists liked to do on their canvas. Realism comes into place and is known for the subjects as they appear in everyday life. It’s what the eye can see with stuff that is going on like real life characters, situations and true life occurrences. Courbet was a French painter who led the realist movement.
Art Criticism Task By: YD The painting I chose is by Greg Conley, it’s called “The Path Chosen”. By looking at the painting you can tell that the artist used a lot of different techniques to make it look unique, realistic and attractive. The artist used the technique wet-in-wet to slightly blur the painting. He also used the technique dry brush which is the opposite of the wet in wet technique, for it makes things very crisp and hard edged; this technique makes features come forward. In addition he used the method flat wash which is using one solid color (yellow in this case) from top to bottom.
Critics loved his work because of his composition, color, and balance. His art was unique and creative from the rest of the artist at that time. I like his art because they are colorful and different. He saw and thought about things differently than others. He was able to combine African American culture, the passion for music, pop culture, and the history of jazz into several pieces of art.
When he felt he had the right image he would then project the slide onto a canvas and pencil in both lines and details. The reason why Goings was so amazingly talented is because he could paint the photograph with such profound detail that the audience would be able to see detail that they would typically not be able to see in reality. "My paintings are about light, about the way things look in their environment and especially about how things look painted. Form, color and space are at the whim of reality, their discovery and organization is the assignment of the realist painter." The painting called Ralphs Diner (1982) is a great example of the vivid detail he used with light color and texture.
The painting starts off from the top with different shades of light muddy brown squares that are interrupted by strokes of paint and the splatter of black. The light muddy brown color is the base of the painting, the background that neutralizes the excitement and emphasizes the other colors and shapes giving them more importance. Under the squares are two interesting circles that seem to become eyes. The eyes draws in the viewers because it almost creates the face. This face is important because it illustrates the face's emotion of wildness and excitement as well as if the face was looking at the viewers and their reaction to the painting.
An artist that left an impression is Jean Grangeon, an artist who incorporated mixed media with bright, vivid colours to grasp the attention of viewers through his impressive masterpieces. I admire him as an artist and many of his art pieces displayed at the the Art Fair because he combines the mediums of acrylic paint, plexiglass, and many other items to compose creative artworks that allow us to discover different messages regarding evolution and human development. Other influences were from family, friends, and peers who shared their unfortunate experience of car crashes/accidents. They also gave me the idea to create the painting using different objects to create the realistic results of a crime scene. In addition, the idea in my piece was developed from watching a variety of television shows, movies, and advertisements that showed the destructive results of car accidents.
