Abstract paintings are known for being theoretical and not actually existing, but I believe that abstract paintings are the most realistic paintings. These paintings show our emotions, our beliefs and our dreams because they start out with no defined goal. As the artist begins the abstract, he has no rigid goal, but as the artist lays down the paint, he begins to see patterns. Chris realizes that certain colors would not mix with the other colors in this color explosion. Even though there are abstract paintings, these paintings are still influenced by the teachings and ideas of art the artist possesses.
Matisse broke the rules of the academy in a similar manner to the Neo-Impressionists, though Matisse’s use of color was far less systematic and relied more on emotion. Though Matisse was reluctant to theorize his style, he did so after enough prodding from critics: “My choice of colors does not rest on any scientific theory; it is based on observation, on feeling, on the very nature of each experience. Inspired by certain pages of Delacroix, Signac is preoccupied by complementary colors and the theoretical knowledge of them will lead him to use a certain tone in a certain place. I, on the other hand, merely try to find a color that will fit my sensation.” (Henri Matisse, reprinted in Theories of Modern Art, p. 135) One work that captures both Matisse’s respect for Signac and departure from the scientific approach is his early Fauvist piece Luxe, Calme, et Volupté (1904). The sky in this painting contains dots not unlike Neo-Impressionist divisionism, though while Signac and others carefully chose their colors to create maximum harmony, Matisse chooses the colors that border one another according to his own whims and fancies.
His brother didn’t like the painting at all. Moreover, art critics of that time blamed his art for being childish due to a number of swirls and long brush strokes that he used in his paintings. Starry Night still is one of the most glamorous masterpieces of history. Why else would the painting have become so famous? The significance of this painting, which art critics did not like, was that it paved the path for an art style known as Expressionism.
Desire Satisfactionism on the other hand, would be able to explain why deception is bad. The painter desires that his paintings are good. Though he does not realize that, in reality his paintings are bad and thus his desires are frustrated. Therefore, his well-being would not increase and deception is bad for
There is an alternate way of perceiving and digesting images. When truly appreciating an image you look not only at what is shown within, but how the images make you feel. Paintings mirror the life you have lived as you see a little amount of yourself in each of the paintings you absorb. The emotional cues and the representations of struggle, life, love, and death should
On the page before this it shows the same image, however, the background is white. At first, I thought nothing of this, and then after turning the page I realized the difference the color really can make. Molly Bang states, “Because in this picture the purple implies nighttime, or the approach of night, and night feels scarier to us than day because we see well during the day and poorly at night.” This made a lot of sense to me. At first I thought the white depicted the picture well and then seeing the purple I truly saw the difference it could make. While the white backgrounded picture is still intimidating the purple background is even more so.
Unlike Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Duccio Di Bouninsegna’s painting is two dimensional and therefore looks unrealistic, because Duccio did not add individual characteristics to the subject of the painting. The artists of the Renaissance painted what they saw making their art realistic, and allowing people to understand how they are similar to the people in the
He felt that focusing on more of the meaning of the painting was more important than the pointless details that did not affect his value. Where the was a shortcoming of action in the painting there was a replacement with meaningful significance. For example in Arthur Lubow’s article Edvard Munch: Beyond The Scream(2006), “‘It was emotion he wanted to depict. "It 's not the chair that should be painted," he once wrote, "but what a person has felt at the sight of it’”(par. 7).
An art should be understood so that its viewers can relate. However, what others see is a vision that is recurrent and dull at times for them. These spectators do not see what is beyond in what they are seeing. The undiscovered side is essentially ignored because the translation is vague enough to be understood. An art in the first place should be relatable not through our interpretation, but on how the artist exemplifies it.
Doing the drawing activity made me feel good about myself and really opened up my eyes because I realized that I couldn’t care less what other people thought of me, or how I was stereotyped or labeled. And people kind of live up to their stereotypes. I know I have. It’s actually really sad that they have been placed in a certain stereotype just because they look different, or they are a certain gender or religion, and they feel like they can’t be anything else beyond that stereotype. In conclusion the biggest thing I have learned is to not care, to not let someone else’s judgment prevent you from reaching your full
