Some people might wonder why this is a standard for a good writing. I believe that art (novel, movie, music, drawing, etc.) is completed when its artist and its audience work together to develop its meaning. Each individual relates to an artwork in unique ways and I believe through this process, the artwork comes alive. However, while there are artworks that are appropriate for this, some artworks are not.
One can read text A, then read text B, and then go back to reading text A – and all of a sudden, one will see new details in text A, that he did not notice before. Going from A to B and back to A also resembles Hegel’s dialectics. This way of moving back and forth is crucial within the study of the humanities: Constantly seeking new information on a topic, changing one’s mind, drawing new parallels and conclusions, etc. The result of 2+2 might never change, but culture, psychology, evolution, people, politics, philosophy, history, etc. consistently will.
I had a hard time finding sources on the topic as typically not a lot of research and documentation covered art that was not classified as fine art. Artists from the Golden Age of Illustration didn’t explore much besides two dimensional mediums and create highly conceptual and original works which likely meant illustration of this sort was not considered fine art. Fine art artworks and artists are arranged into movements and receive a lot of in depth analysis and research. Illustrations from the Golden Age while bearing great similarities were likely perceived differently from a movement like surrealism or dadaism which meant it received less attention in the research and documentation area. From this investigation, I learnt firstly to choose a topic I am capable of exploring that I will not lose interest in or give up on.
The Moche vessel is very realistic in its depiction of the human face, while the Cupisnique vessel is extremely abstract. Yet, as previously mentioned, the abstract style of the Cupisnique vessel is most likely due to the focus of the piece which is another difference between the two artifacts. The Cupisnique vessel is depicting a transformation of the mind, while the Moche Vessel is simple a portrait of a warrior or ruler. Lastly, the different time periods is a possible explanation for smaller differences between the two artifacts. The Moche vessel, which was probably created a thousand
Irwin has no claims to any specific art movement, yet her works often resemble those of the Abstract Expressionists'. Both she and Frankenthaler are known for their abstract pieces, and their choice of subject matter and colors bear striking similarities. Frankenthaler's works tend more towards the light side of the color spectrum, and are often much more abstract than Irwin's, while Irwin tends towards more recognizable scenic views. Both artists express energy in the way their paint flows, and their works seem more like feelings in physical form. They speak of music, of emotions taking visible forms.
Question 1: The abstract art that Malevich created was Suprematism; this was based on the use of straight lines. Suprematism as an art form focused on basic shapes like rectangles, circles and squares for their art and they also used a limited range of sharp colours in their work. Suprematism was started by Malevich in Russia in about 1913. Malevich called the art form Suprematism, because he believed it was better than all the art forms of the past. Malevich used the square which is never found in nature to be the subject of his paintings.
Kunard (n.d.) points out that mostly critics were put off by the camera’s mechanical qualities; some believed that “art cannot be produced through a mechanical device” (p. 172). The debates on artistic merit of photography have continued to the present date. I can agree with C. Jabez Hughesthat a certain categorization is possible dividing photography into Mechanical, Art, and High-Art (Kunard, n.d., p. 161).I believe that much depends on the photographer and what he or she wants to convey, as well as their mastery of the device and an ability to do in picture what one keeps in mind. A truly artistic picture needs to possess an ability to stir emotions in the viewer and be skillfully made. Henry Fox Talbot made a passing remark about a broom leaned against a door frame implying that it could be equaled to art only due to its resemblance to Dutch masters who were known for
In his essay “The Decay of Lying”, Oscar Wilde wrote, “No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.” This prominent playwright believed that the purpose of art stood in distortion and adornment. However, in comparing Point Reyes Country Road by Asha Carolyn Young and Wheatfield with Crows by Vincent van Gogh, I made the conclusion that the Wilde’s statement is false. Many different forms of art exist, and whether it is realistic, abstract, or anything else; all art styles should be recognized as “art”. Although the style is different, the result that they provide to the audience is the same— a reaction in a human sense or emotion.
In this painting the painter used neither extreme straight nor extreme curve lines. The straight lines are not as strong as the ones in his works when he was in the middle age, while the curve lines are not as soft as those in his late works, but his excellent skill can be seen in this
Thus, Twain illuminates that as a person gains knowledge and experience, he gives up his simple perspective for greater understanding of what he is truly observing. Subsequently implying that beauty lies in mystery. Didion has not attained complete knowledge about the
Another important feature that differs it from the traditional mezzotint is this creates ink dots rather than an empty area of paper with ink surrounding it. No other printmaking method today can actually create these effects (however an aquatint is the nearest technique that can provide a grainy tonal texture but still holds no competition compared to the carborundum mezzotint
It is important to remember that authorities have no power over outsider artists because 'true ' outsiders are detached from our shared reality. They live in their own world and their originality and value stems from their ability to depict their the world they experience in their art. Wölfli, without colored pencils and magazine, would still have lived in his world and, I would argue, have experienced that world similarly to how he depicted it with crayons and colored pencils. I will grant that it is possible that his art magnified specific aspects of the reality he experienced such that he might have seen more slugs or little birds the more he drew them or that his rate of interest might have grown faster the more he tallied his revenues and expense, but the laws his world obeyed would have basically remained the same with or without his records documenting his
