Morrison depicts the horizon at the top of the painting in purple, with the lake directly underneath it in blue. The bottom half of the painting is a representation of the cliffs that border much of Lake Superior.

5. Andy Goldsworthy spoke of having to live with the artistic medium (for Andy it was the land and the people and their history) to understand it and ultimately make it into art. How does this statement relate to the experience and process that Vik Muniz has in creating photographs of the inhabitants of the landfill?

Very much like Andy, Vik involves the environment in his art as a representation of the basis of the artwork.

We are looking closer at Edouard Manet’s “Olympia” (1863) which was the cause of many disputes among the French artists and which provoked a new way of thinking in art. Manet rejected the ideals and traditions of Renaissance art and gave ‘birth’ to the impressionists (Pbs.org, 2015). By giving examples from the image above we already see what Manet is trying to accomplish. I will also make a comparison to an image that Manet took as inspiration to create “Olympia” in order to give a clear explanation of how Manet achieves his objective. Manet uses thick and rough brushstrokes which is evident on the sheets which look unfinished.
