This piece is a good representation of Irwin's work, largely because it showcases her talent in bringing forth an image or scene without directly painting it on the canvas. This painting, showing a cloudy day, could take place at any time, in any place. Irwin's work often uses similar colors and scenery, but each is distinct from the others. Despite the lack of apparent foreground or background, one can clearly tell where the ground ends and the sky begins. The subtle use of unusual colors, pink and purple and lavender, in the ground and even more so in the sky, fills the viewer with a sense of contentment and
Aspects of the artist hidden within. The notion of plot and symbolism can be easily compared to a game of hide and seek. Because to truly understand the story you have to search the plot for the inner meaning. Plot is the bones of the short story, everything it relies on to exist but symbolism hidden within is the soul of the short story and
Each of these uses involves a contrast between human thought or imagination and an external reality independent of India. Realism in art and literature is an endeavour to life as it is. It shows life with reality, omitting nothing that is ugly or painful, and idealizing nothing. Realism began as a recognizable movement in art in the eighteenth century. By the mid of nineteenth century, it was an art form.
In this paragraph I will be talking about how the story and photograph have a similar technique. A technique that is similar and used throughout the story is figurative language. This is shown in the caption of the photograph when it says, “As the only window to the future”. This is an example of a figurative language because there aren’t windows that lead to your future.
Mentioned earlier Oxford Dictionary of Art (Chilvers, et al., 1998, 333), offers an additional segment of Minimalism’s definition: “Minimal art is associated particularly with the USA and its impersonality is seen as a reaction against the emotiveness of Abstract Expressionism”. By contrast, Abstract Expressionism does not appreciate the geometry values. The most distinctive creations rely on emotion and the power of the moment, lacking clear construction and pre-planned structure to it. Abstract Expressionism “is often characterised by gestural brush-strokes or mark-making, and the impression of spontaneity” (Tate, undated). Random movements shaping up the final form contradict the harmony between shapes, colours and space, resulting in a portrait of emotions rather than calm simplicity.
Nevertheless, Philip Pearlstein manages to create a notion of philosophy in each of his paintings. One of the paintings by Philip Pearlstein that I chose in the museum is the painting “Butterfly Kite” that was painted in 2006. The painting is a lithograph signed and drawn in pencil. The manner of drawing allowed the
Pepe Karmel tells us “The formal qualities of an abstract painting or sculpture are significant not in themselves but as part of the work’s expressive message.”4 According to this definition Seed falls whole-heartedly into the category of abstract, specifically referring to the limited color palette and undefined species as previously mentioned. Does the heat of orange with its message of fertility and energy5 contrasted with the “something cool and detached about blue”5 support the expressive message of Seed? Going back to what Linda Lynch said of her work overall, “representation… rather than image”2 color does seem to go beyond a simple choice to symbolic representation and her
In photography, there are several composition guidelines to draw the reader to the subject of the work. Angela, although not a photograph, fills the frame prohibit the eyes from wondering far from the subject. The mark frames the subject’s eyes, submitting them to be the main focus of the portrait. Since eyes are primarily a small element of the face making scale an important factor to portraits and the focal point. Angela is a fairly large canvas being forty inches by sixty inches.
The elegiac painting “Requiem for Gregory Battcock”, was conceived and executed by the artist using a deep, dark and somber painting medium, and had been created with an openly expressive and gestural painterly method, using black and a dark blue enamel paint. Combined with liquefied-thinned silver enamel paint on a solid-black Arches paper. The painter also combined these pictorial mediums with white and silver sharp lines that were incisive diagonally and vertically onto the pictorial plane. The piece could be seen horizontally and or vertically, and its composition would not be off balance or fall in either direction that the work was
Surrealism and op art forces someone to second guess what they see. I find this useful when I am designing or creating my own artwork. I want people’s eyes to linger on the art I make. I have an aesthetic that is similar to Steranko’s in that I am influenced by some of the same artwork he was influenced by. To make someone question what they are seeing, I think, is the purpose of art itself.
A paintbrush on a canvas, a pencil on paper, anything that could be used to express feelings. Art is beautiful and versatile, from a variety of mediums to choose from, the sky 's the limit. It is my way of coping with the world, an escape from reality into somewhere where I decide what goes. The colors gliding off, swimming together to become something different in everyones eyes. Art is communication without words, but with the mind.
The Literary Realism of William Dean Howells and Mark Twain The Civil War was an eventful time for the World, and the root for many transitions in the Unites States. Not only were new innovations like weapon machinery, and movements such as Women’s Suffrage, and Prohibition causing American conversation, but the literary realism of writers such as Mark Twain and William Dean Howells. With similar backgrounds and realistic views on the post civil war these two notable writers made readers feel like their stories were relatable and personable. Literary Realism is stories that were created to assimilate to the American way of life post civil war.
