Jo Applin’s critique and arguments are some that I definitely would agree with! Tom Friedman is a contemporary artist that takes ordinary materials and boring activities, and creatively turns them into exaggerated pieces of artwork. (For example, sharpening a pencil, cooking pasta, or assembling a jigsaw puzzle.) “Friedman’s work is related to the past as much as the present”, states Applin, who also argues that Friedman’s process of creating, draws on the strategies of bricolage and braconnage. Bricolage is the method of taking whatever is at hand, and creating something new with it.
Gascoigne used traditional ideas and techniques like repetition, the grid and re-assemblage in her work. Rosalie also used ideas of using materials which would catch the viewers’ attention. Her emotions also give Gascoigne ideas for her art making. In ‘White City’ she constructs the artwork to her emotions and thoughts of a city. She believes that cities are busy, plan and bland.
The used of red and green and yellow adds contracts as red and green are on the opposite side of the color wheel. According to Laurie Schneider Adams author of History of Western Art, “They [complementary colors] are often juxtaposed when a strong eye-catching contrast is desired” (17). The gold, red, and green are warm and bright and add a sense of pop to the paining as the colors contrast the cooler blues and browns in the background. The symmetrical composition that this group of figure creates is very well balanced. Raphael like many other Renaissance artists uses geometric design to create balance and symmetry.
Name: Tutor: Course: Date: The works of Vincent van Gogh and sol LeWitt and Japanese influence on European art 1. In drawing a comparison and contrast between the works of Vincent van Gogh and sol LeWitt, Vincent van Gogh’s application of symbolic colors and paint to express subjective emotion have created the basis of defining abstract expressionism, which started with the Americans after the World War II movement of art creation and presentation. LeWitt’s work, on the other hand, has been used as a basis for the use of traditional art materials during the creation of artworks. However, his use of traditional art materials had been improved, to involve the use of digital technology and computers to create and edit these materials. Some
Her work in modern design included the concepts of geometric abstraction, the combination of furniture, fabrics, wall coverings, and clothing. While Orphism as a whole was concerned with the use of color, Sonia’s color choices were particularly bold, bright and unique. Her designs focused on stripes, zigzags and concentric geometrical patterns. Occasionally she would break away from purely abstract painting and include women in her scenes. Along with painting, she
Jian Wu ESL 15/ Dr. Adams The art is all over the world, there are so many different type of art, such as painting, sculpture, and graffiti. People have different idea about the art; like different type of arts. Dorothy Allison in her essay “This Is Our World” shows how these types of art provokes. She points out about art were well made because of her stories. Allison proved the art is subjective.
Stepped forms were another important element in Art Deco, as can be best seen in some of the famous buildings that were created in this style. Other favoured components were trapezoids, zigzag lines, and a strong use of symmetry that could only be found in man-made objects. Motifs such as chevrons, sunbursts, spilling fountains, and even automobile grilles were key parts of the lexicon of Art Deco design. Much of the furnishings of Art Deco were a reaction to the austerity of World War I. Walls were painted cream or brown, and although left mostly plain, would sometimes have a thin border stencilled underneath the ceiling and in corners.
The distinctively visual is used throughout peter goldsworthys novel ' maestro ' and the painting By edward munch ' the scream ' 1893. there is some overlap between the distinctively visual techniques used by these writers and painters. This is done through the use of visual imagery, metaphor, exaggeration and the use of colour. The extended metaphor of peter goldsworthy “to describe the world is always to simplify its texture, to coarsen the weave: to lose the particular in general”, portrays that once you try to represent something, you lose something of its real life essence and that the act of writing about something in the world simplifies it. Both texts revel important insights into human experiences by showing the reader how the character
As the question states, there are other types of judgement, such as political, legal, and social; in this context therefore one needs to juxtapose aesthetics judgement against these. Another key feature of judgements that the question poses is the fact that it is easy to differentiate between aesthetic and all other types; is this really so? The penultimate and ultimate concepts to be delimited are traditional and modern aesthetics. Traditional aesthetics, purported to have the real definition of Art; that is Traditional Aesthetics
Although there a many similarities in Wall’s A Sudden Gust of Wind and Hokusai’s Shunshuu Ejiri, there are also a considerable amount of differences. The most obvious difference between the two artworks is the medium. Jeff Wall’s piece is a type of photography where he “creates his works using actors and actresses on location, as in a movie production, and uses a computer to construct elaborate scenes.”(TK) Hokusai, on the other hand, used the woodblock method. Which is a method where the “image would first be drawn onto washi (Japanese paper), and then glued onto a plank of wood, usually cherry. Wood would then be cut away, based on the outlines
