At 1st glance this piece does look like a photograph, even a painting, but this series is a work of mixed-media layered one on top of the other in a box. Yet this assemblage of random found objects, with the artists
Patrick Price ARHS-1020-01 New Orleans Museum of Art Sculptures The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, part of the New Orleans Museum of Art, contains several dozen 20th century and 21st century sculptures from across the globe. The five-acre garden mostly features figures from American and European artists, most of them being created
Every soul will be judged and the good will go to heaven and the damned will go to hell. The sculpture vividly expresses the emotional intensity of what the afterlife will look like. On the left-side the sculpture shows “heaven” the figures show that they are at peace because they know their souls have been saved. The children are laughing and the angels are blowing their trumpets with joy in anticipation of Christs’ return. As for the right-side it tells of what “Hell” maybe like, demons are weighing the souls and claiming them. It shows people suffering, crying and realizing that they’re going to hell for
The era this piece most represents is the Renaissance art in the fifteenth-century Italy. It goes best with this era because of its use of nudity and shape and lighting. Its use of space of sharp edges and sculpture figures. Also the use of lighting shows an almost 3-D like image. Even though this is a print it almost seems like a picture of statues. The artist also used a sense of scale and proportion in this piece. Every statue is differently scaled from the others. The body parts on each statue did not quite fit with the other body parts. Every statue is different in size, stance, and color. Also the background behind each figure is different from the other ones, in its use of color and detail.
For example: John Davis has also created the artwork: Koan. It is built from twigs, cotton thread, calico and bituminous paint. Made in 1999, it is 20cm x
It feels like that there is no one around to be with and socialize with, kind of barren like. This photo makes me feel lonely inside and makes me a little depressed. It also makes me feel a little scared and I'm not curious to see what is on the other side of the bridge. Other people’s mind leads them to wonder what is on the other side of the bridge and what is behind or inside the tower in the background. The clouds swirling around the moon and how it is very sharp and pixelated. The house to the side of the background gives off a creepy vibe that is unsettling to me and other people that look at this photo the Clarence John Laughlin took. I imagine that when he was was taking these pictures and thinking about where he would take them he was going through a dark time and he thinks his past and when his father died he portrays that in the photos he takes. This photo gives off mixed emotions for me knowing his history but how this photo is titled “passed to never land” he tried to make this photo less tragic and heavy but more upbeat and light. This picture kinda makes my heart feel a little cold and that no one likes me or understands all the things i'm going through in my life. Im sure that when others would see this picture they would see a man who is lonely and scared and has no one to talk to. Also, they would think that he has been through alot in his life and he does an amazing job with demonstrating this in this
Richard Hunt is a sculptor whose work largely draws on abstraction, crafting organic shapes with industrial materials. His approach to his art is one that is based on compulsion, as he combines various curvilinear and angular forms to form an ambiguous hybrid that captures the African American experience. By crafting
The status depicts a woman. It is made out of marble and pentelic. It is an off-white/yellow color, and it is 71½ inches, almost 6 feet tall. It was used as a grave monument. The sculpture is slightly larger than a real human would be. The the body and the clothing
Almost every human being is afraid of the idea of death and is shown clearly in the painting. The hooded mask man or creature could possibly be a representation of death because of the colors in the painting and the reaction of the group of men. Not only is there a portrayal of death, but there is possibly a portray of man. It is shown in the leader of the group of men, who is dressed different than the rest of the others. He is the first one to scatter since he is afraid of death. Contrary to popular belief, the leader is suppose to be the one who fights off all evil but is doing the exact opposite in the painting. He has trampled over his men in order to save himself. I find myself thinking of death and what a terrifying idea it is to think that no matter how fast or far we try to run away from the incident, death is inevitable. The artists uses dark colors to represent a dark time in life. The scratched up lines can possibly represent that nothing is perfect, not even drawing straight lines or coloring in the lines. I appreciate the artists honestly but dislike how the painting leads me to think about death and responding to the actions of the
Together is a direct representation of the African American culture, and I want to draw attention to this piece because it resembles ideas and emotions, like I had experienced with Together. The whole idea to this particular piece is that it was meant to speak of a message. The message is in the title, so it was made to portray a last message to the people. The Last Judgment is a stone sculpture that was placed in the beginning of church. It was meant for people to see what the forms of an afterlife where they could end up if they belief in an afterlife, which is a Christian belief. This would support the statement that both pieces of artwork had a hidden message displayed through both of them. One has a message to the people of the church, while the other piece speaks to a community in a particular
During Thanksgiving Break, I visited the St. Louis Art Museum in my hometown. Through many floors of sculptures, painting, and other objects, the one thing that caught my eye was the portrait called Women Seated on Sofa in Interior. This piece was by Fredrick Carl Frieseke an American impressionist painter.
I feel that this is a narrative or a ritualistic artwork that is about a Native American spirit premonition appearing before the woman in the picture and it is supposed to represent past of the past of this women or Native American culture. I feel that the background landscape contributes to this idea because it is in the
When I viewed the piece it automatically attracted my eye. The fact that the artist chose to use BB's was something I had not seen done before. Upon further inspection the art had a deeper meaning it talked about the Numbers of deaths
The print is presented with antique brass, pastel brown, pale gold, wheat, and pale chestnut. These undertones of colors that are softened or moderated create a feeling of gloom and calm at the same time. In addition, Klee used the technique of color blocking by overlapping squares. There is no particular color that dominates the entire image or completely catches a viewer’s attention. However, Klee emphasized on harmonization of colors by considering not only the combination of the colors but also the composition and the scale of the blocks. Each block blends harmoniously into one another so that it creates a sense of rhythmical or rhythmic changes, even though those colors used are analogous. Therefore, the print reminds me of lyrical melody, especially moody and gentle jazz music. While the background of the print presents a sense of color, the artist detached color from physical description and the objects are drawn childlike. Thus, the print looks like an illustrated page of a child’s diary that depicts an image of his or her
The artwork, “Number 10,” by Mark Rothko displays two rectangles (top, yellow and the bottom, white) with a baby blue background color. Seeing the painting for the first time was surprising since I didn’t understand how it correlated with the title. It was easy to look at, but it didn’t catch my attention right away! I felt confused and frustrated while observing the piece because I didn’t know how I was going to find the meaning that lay behind the painting. This reminded me of my first-born nephew; I had such a difficult time trying to understand why he would cry so much. However, I was aware that crying was his way of communicating how he felt, just like painting this abstract piece was Rothko's style of communication.
