The overall placement of In the Studio, is taken somewhere between his studio while The Tenth Street Studio seems to be placed near the corner. The placement of these two paintings along with the color scheme lends a different feel to them. In In the Studio I felt a sense of openness given how he has placed the subject on a bench instead of a chair and where she is placed within the space and by placing one rug under the subject helps lend to that feeling. When I compare that to The Tenth Street Studio, I get a subdued feeling thanks impart to the dark colors and the large black space at the right of it. I think The Tenth Street Studio and In the Studio show his progress with his technique and how his studio can be used to display
Pollard’s classroom, there were many different rules and styles of class management. When it comes to entering and exiting the classroom, Mrs. Pollard greets the students outside the room and then she plays either a hello song on the piano or a recorded song of a stylistic genre of music. When the students exit the room, she has them line up at the door and then picks a superstar of the day and that student gets to write his or her name on the superstar white board. When they go to the Orff instruments Mrs. Pollard calls people in order to go to the instruments and tells them to go around the instruments and not step over them. I assume she calls them to a certain instrument so they can play a different instrument each time and sit next to someone else because they have a seating chart on the floor.
The second picture I chose, “Suzy Parker and Mike Nichols, coat by Saint Laurent, The American Hospital, Paris, August 1962”, used contrast similar to the first picture however, used a contrast in the type of clothing each of the people were wearing, rather than the color. As many of Avedon’s pictures depict, the lady standing in the center of the image shows emotional distress through her body language. The bandages on her wrists also help to portray a somber mood, as Avedon favored showing real-life struggles instead of the doll-like models many other photographers tended to use at this time. To focus more attention on the subject, Avedon also blurred the objects in the foreground of the photograph. Lastly, I chose the picture “Malcolm X” by Richard Avedon.
In 1898 Théophile Alexandre Steinem created the color lithograph Dance on the Outskirts of Town that is in the Dallas Museum of Art as part of their Paris at the Turn of the Century exhibition (Figure 1). Despite the images small size and use of dark colors, it captivates the viewer with an exciting scene that focuses attention with lines and carefully placed figures. In this essay I will examine how Steinem used medium, line and color. I will discuss how these elements are used to create shapes, direct the viewer and depict the atmosphere of late 19th century Paris. Dance on the Outskirts of Town depicts the exuberant night life of 1800 Paris in a working class dance hall.
Edward Hopper grew up loving art and showed a great amount of talent in the field at a very young age. Seeing this his parents insisted he go to school for commercial art. He ended up studying at the New York School of Art and Design. His early works modeled that of Chase and French masters Edouard Manet and Edgar Degas. Later in his career, Hopper found his own unique style, which emphasized realism, a dark palette, and architectural paintings.
Mise En Scene: The Mise En Scene in the film Birdman is shown countless times through the broadway stage. Backstage areas of the theater, dressing rooms, rooftops, corridors, and, of course, the stage all provide deeply detailed to perfectly contain the characters in the film. Printed couches, scrawled “congratulations” notes, flowers and flickering light bulbs adorn our hero’s dressing room. These spaces are each decorated to look authentic. Color also plays a large role in “Birdman”.
All through her life, Yayoi Kusama endeavors to depict the theme of infinity or the endless space by experimenting on different materials and methods. Her artistic creation never stops and she tries to draw inspiration from modern factors. In 2002, Fireflies on the Water, an fantastic and illusory installation work, was on show in Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. This installation consists of lights, plexiglass and water. Numerous small lights bulbs are hanging from the ceiling, symbolizing fireflies.
This painting was made between the years of 1867-1868. This work demonstrates the talent of Renoir’s work and show’s how he was able to capture the scene of every-day life of people in different socioeconomic classes within one scene. This artwork shows off his amazing use of lighting, as well as the uses of various colors, and shadowing techniques; the contrast between color usages
Within this book, he wrote that he felt Surrealist artists should “depict a kind of madness or fever in which a thing could look like one thing one moment and like another the next.” To achieve this, several Dali paintings used these ‘double’ images to confuse and disturb people looking at them. An example of where this can be seen within his work is in one of his most prominent pieces of artwork ‘The Persistent of Memory’. This image depicts a watch flopping over what appears to be a strange, paled-coloured rock. Observing the image more closely, nonetheless, it could be suggested that the image is a clear representation of Dali’s personality traits. It is important to remember that his paranoia and anxiety are traits that various people remember him by.
Kahlo painted Two Frida's using the element of texture to create interest in the two self-portraits in her piece of art. Frida's figures become focal points of the painting that stand out against the dark and cloudy background which contrasts with white figures. Frida's work usually applied have human blood as a symbol of union. Contrast is a principle of design. The painting also has the contrast between the static, unmoving portraits and the rhythmic flowing clouds moving behind them.
Unlike the dramatic stage lighting that occurs throughout the film, the moment when Kane destroys the bedroom is very broadly lit. There are several reasons for this lighting choice that lead to one conclusion. Welles insisted that the ceilings in rooms are visible to the audience. This decision meant that many of the set ceilings were actually stretched cloth through which light was shown. A person can assume this is the case in the bedroom with its light colored ceiling.
The title of the class is Raid the Archives—Understanding Visual Literacy, so we focus on the idea of the archive and how it impacts us. The learning outcome for the project includes a newfound understanding of visual literacy and the connections between creativity and investigative research. My project proposal is to create an archive of movement. I am a ballet dancer and I wanted to be able to document my art form in a different medium. I hope to lay paper down and dip my feet in paint then dance to create a calligraphy-like piece of art.
Examples where the set design was most adequate was during the love tunnel scene, during the beginning of the production, and at the ending of the production. In the love tunnel scene, Daisy, Violet, Terry, and Buddy sat in a wooden seat that looked like a ride, just like one that would be going through a real “tunnel”. It also moved which made the scene more realistic. There was also a screen above them in the middle of the stage that had hearts moving in and out. It was dark in the theatre and included colors of pink, red, and purple to capture the mood of “love’.
Edward Hopper once said, “No amount of skillful invention can replace the essential element of imagination” (qtd. in “Edward Hopper Quotes”). Hopper started out his career as a struggling impressionist, leaving many aspects of his art up to the interpretation and imagination of the person looking at it. Hopper also traveled to Europe, in particular Paris, and here he worked with the unique lighting of the city to show more expression in his artwork through the symbols of light and darkness (Edward Hopper Biography). Using the skills he learned through these experiences Edward Hopper started to paint urban settings with a focus on lighting as well as the expression of the people inside the art, while leaving the personality of these people
Architecture is also art you see these high skyscraper they all have blue prints, which is a rough draft of the drawing, and some of the designs used in architecture are a form of art because it creates many different patterns using tons of colors, shapes and sizes. As you can see, many things we use in our daily life contain little bit of art. There is always a meaning behind any artwork; you just have to look to notice. The artist expresses himself or herself though out art by using different type of painting skills, Sometimes people can get attached to a certain type of canvas because of the way it makes them feel or because they feel a certain enjoyment, when I went to the art gallery tons of bright colored paintings made me feel joy. In my art 1301 class I have learned tons of great information about art and I can use it towards my future, art is everywhere and you are able to express yourself because of art, because of this class I know that there is more then just modern art, art contains different skills.
