Motion Capture is an exhibition that explores the relationship of movement in two artistic media: drawing and the moving image. Featuring artworks from the mid-twentieth century through to the present day, the exhibition emphasizes the way in which artists have employed the capacities of these mediums to communicate and embody movement. (Packer, 2012) In this exhibition the relationship between drawing and the moving image is explored through ideas of technology, legibility and that of the human body, both in the act of drawing and in the act of looking. The term drawing is applied to works that vary greatly in technique, it has been understood in different ways at different times and is difficult to define. During the Renaissance the ‘Disegno’ implied drawing both as a technique to be distinguished from colouring and also as the creative idea made visible in the preliminary sketch, it is defined by the shorter Oxford dictionary as: “The formation of a line by drawing some tracing instrument from point to point of a surface; representation by lines; delineation as distinguished from painting;… the arrangement of lines which determine form.” Despite this insistence on the formation of a line and the implied lack of colour, few would deny that a work formed by dots or shading or wholly in line but in a range of colours is a drawing.
Application essay for photography course I have always been in pursuit of art as a medium for expression, I have experimented and worked with almost every art form in my personal life, school, university and work as an artist, graphic designer and photographer. In the recent years after finishing university, photography has become more and more my preferred medium for communication. I have come to realise images are wordless expressions, because I feel that so much of the human experience is intangible and so much of what we perceive cannot be expressed through verbal language. It's simply unspeakable. Yet, when we have communicated with one another and we feel that we have connected, I believe we have a feeling of spiritual communion.
Art is the relationship between the artist and the world surrounding him. The world will change but the art would stay strong. Art is basically everything surrounding us, everything which is designed and built is art, the shoes that you wear, the chair that u sit on and many other things can be considered as art. It is pretty interesting how art has changed during time and each period or generation and they had their own definition of art and it was different, each one has their own way to describe art, the usage of materials and creating stuffs. Art history includes the entire history of humankind; from the prehistoric age all the way up to the twenty-first century.
Practice in art refers to the decisions and actions that affect choices, perceptions, ways of working and views of an artist or art historian. Tim Storrier sums up the practice of an artist by saying that “A painting is really a graphic illustration of where a particular artist is at that point in his life and the art encompasses what the artist has gone through in their life.” On art historians and critics he says “Other people come along and interpret the painting with their own life experiences” The subjectivity involved in a critic or art historian’s views are extremely high. The practice of Tim Storrier is informed by the theories of painting an idea with a poetic edge. This idea then goes searching for “totems” to portray itself upon. Storrier speaks about this theory: “My paintings don’t start with visual stimulation, it’s usually an intellectual idea with a poetic edge, then the idea goes searching for different totems to portray itself upon.” Storrier elaborates further that “The bottom line of my paintings is that they are trying to come up with totemic images about Australia.
Complex interworking of representation of perceived reality by the painter, ideological approach of the viewer is at play, both, striving to figure out the real. The paper will try to analyze Frida Kahlo’s two paintings Self-Portrait With Thorn Necklace and Humming Bird and Henry ford hospital, The Flying Bed under this lens. The term visual might seem to a layman too simplistic to be critically analyzed but the field of visual culture expands the scope of our ways of seeing and the perceptions that govern an individual's spectatorship. It is easy to define visual as "What is visible to eyes" but new vistas are opened when as students of visual studies we set to decipher the fact that our understanding of reality is primarily if not wholly based on our pre-conceived notions, acquired ideas, collective unconsciousness (Jung), ideologies etc. I call this method of visualizing as pre-conceived because it is governed by our societal cultures, traditions, norms and beliefs.
There are many reasons why artists paint self-portraits. Artists paint self-portraits to explore themselves more deeply and portray themselves the way they would like to be seen.
