Upon looking at the Matisse’s Bonheur de Vivre we see that ultimate departure. My interpretation is of this painting is that it is certainly a contrast with bright colors while at the same time also having a somewhat distorted view of reality and of the human form. This painting was certainly significant in making a bold statement of the human form as well as of human existence being viewed as being leisurely and indulgent. The second painting, could be seen as a departure, just as discussed taking the dehumanization to a different level. The distortion is far more angular and of course, as noted above, the background follows this distortion and further emphasizes this style of
In a painting, spirit resonance is created through the expression of the artist’s balance in their energy and harmony, while in architecture the spatial vibrancy is established through the organisation of spatial sequences and experience when ‘delight’ is passed to the audience. Damian Chavez on Xie He’s principles, has said that “the most important principle of painting [spirit resonance] is the thing least guaranteed by the rules of art and design, yet instrumental for making
In the book World or Art by Henry M. Sayre the following chapters express important elements and design concepts in art: “Chapter 4 Line”, “Chapter 5 Space”, and “Chapter 6 Light and Color”. One of the most universal principles of art is line; lines, be it long, short, big, wide, curvy, straight, directional, sporadic, controlled, emotional or even intellectual, are the most basic tool an artist can use, but a powerful tool at that. There are many variations of lines with various aspects each enhance; for example, an implied line makes us follow a line, that is not physically there, to another object, but an outline the edge of 2D and 3D
Empson said that: „The machinations of ambiguity are among the very roots of poetry”(Surdulescu, Stefanescu, 30). The ambiguous intellectual attitude deconstructs both the heroic commitement to a cause in tragedy and the didactic confinement to a class in comedy; its unstable allegiance permits Keats’s exemplary poet (the „camelion poet”, more of an ideal projection than a description of Keats actual practice) to derive equal delight conceiving a lago or an Imogen. This perplexing situation is achieved through a histrionic strategy of „showing how”, rather than „telling about it” (Stefanescu, 173 ). It is true that Keats wished to make progress in philosophy: one reason for this was that he believed that an epic poet must be a philosopher. Apart from the passages in his letters where he talks of his philosophical
Post-Impressionism, for example, without any delay calls to mind favorites of mine, such as Van Gogh 's beloved "Starry Night" (1889) and "The Bedroom" (1889). One can see the effect of Impressionism in the brush strokes, yet Post-Impressionism took its own direction, with its artists rather using beautiful, very bright and strong color in their paintings and permeating them with the emotions with the artist. Post-Impressionist is a considered most likely movement of mine, as it is
Surrealism is a radical, aesthetic movement that transformed both materiality, and the very being of art itself. Surrealism deals with internal contradiction, incoherence, and the marvelous, with a conjunction of disparate objects to bring forth a movement of love and liberation. Unlike a majority of the French surrealists, Rene Magritte placed a great emphasis on ideas surrounding enigma, and representations of mystery. Magritte is well known for blurring the lines between the real and the imagined within Surrealism. The works of Magritte are not similar to the works of the fellow surrealists at the time such as Salvador Dali, or even deal with the same ideologies of automatism and objective chance.
His greatest contribution to art is the cultivation of the modern art concept, known as 'impressionism'(Claude Monet, 2004). It is an artistic philosophy which changed the then accepted perception of color and light.His artistic style is characterized by the use of feathery strokes of the paint brush to depict the play of light with respect to the time. He believed that depicting 'time' in a painting is more important than the 'plot', and was interested in using his painting to capture the feel of the moment. As per Monet "One does not paint countryside, a view, a figure. One paints an impression of an hour of the day (Brussat and Brussat, n.d.)."
The two abstract art I am going compare and contrast is expressionism and surrealism. And the two artworks are Number 1 by Pollock Jackson from expressionism and Mama, Papa is wounded! By Yves Tanguy from surrealism. I chose these artworks because these were the most influence artwork in those movements Number 1 was painted in 1950. This painting is made on oils,
Terrorist, provocateur, iconoclast, refusing any ideological, moral or artistic constraint, he advocates confusion, demoralization, absolute doubt and releases the virtues of spontaneity, kindness, joy of living. Paradoxically, its activity of deconstruction and destruction of languages (verbal and plastic) is reflected in sustainable works that open up some major paths of contemporary art. The Dada movement: From anti-art to art Dada was much more a response to a historical, social, political situation than to a
Introduction First I will like to apologize to impressionism for a the miss conception I had about it I though that impressionism was simply an early form of abstract art. As I began to study it though I began to realize that this is far from the truth and that an initial impression based in a lack of knowledge can create a bad opinion. Through studying it I began to realize that it is one of the most beautiful style I have ever seen and quickly began to grow on me. The artist that paints in this style does so much with so little it would appear that they almost smudge different parts of the painting and it all comes together to make one glorious master piece. I personally like this style very much because it takes and does so much with less
