Scale and Proportion
As we all know mountains are huge and in this image created
by Katsushika Hokusai the mountain dosent seem to be that
big. At this point we percieve that mountain is far off in the distance. This image is called Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji: The Surface of Lake Misaka in Kai Province and was made in the
early 1830's. As the arrows indicate the boat is the same size as the house , but because we are closer to the boat than house we percieve its bigger when in reality the normal mind would know its not the case. This is to be thr exact definition of scale and proportion.
This historic art work was created by Raphael in c.1517. The movement in this image is fast due to the amount of things
going on. When my eyes first laid on this image I knew it was the one to describe this category. I started looking at the where the white arrow, for the simple fact of the importance of Jesus Christ in the Christian religion. Than the red arrow was next for me as he seemed like the one pulling Jesus as he's the primary image in this art work. And than moved on to the yellow arrow which in more of a recent terms would be a police type person, calming the area as best as he could. The green arrow next is what my eyes immediately went too due to his direct effect on the primary image of the picture. Than the blue arrow came
next to me because in the whole artwork i feel like she is the secondary image and was almost as ital in the image as Jesus Christ was.
This image of Willian Kentridge is the apitamy of
contrast/variety. Theres different people in it that represent a lighter and darker shade of color used by this artist, and also thin and thick. This was created between 1980 and 2001 and
was called Forswearing Bad Company. As the blue lines will tell you clearly the artist wants more attention given to those me as opposed to the one with red arrows pointing to them.
Because naturally the viewers eyes will head to the darker
more vivid image with detail as opposed to lighter and thinner drawing. Not to say those images aren't important but they
seem to be complimentary to the whole work of art as
opposed to the main image.
This art work was created by Larry Poons in 1964 and was
called Nixes Mate. The little oval shapes are the repetition in the image, and if looked at close enough there are three
different variety's of repeating colors. There are white, brown and almost transparent a darker red oval shape. As the arrows can indicate these are the different colors and theres a rhythm to them specially when you look at the positioning in these
ovals. Although three different colors the go together in two different directions as you could see in the image. One
direction upper left while the other going upper right.
This art work was created by Claude Monet in 1873 and was
titled Camille Monet on a Garden Bench. In opinion the focal point is represented a lot by scale. From what I've learned for my self in this course the figure in a art work that most catches my eye tend to be, one a darker image, or two a bigger image. And in this one in particular the woman closest to the view
catches my eye first therefore i view her as primary as the red arrow points to her. As the secondary i believe it is the man i could almost make the point that the man can be together with the woman on the bench as both primary due to their
closeness. But then i figured she shows more detail and more body so that argument quickly dies. And last as the third
imaged in the art work represented by the blue arrow is the
woman looking at the flower garden. Clearly the farthest away and not as defined as the primary or even secondary images.
This is an example of asymmetrically balanced art work. This was created by Childe Hassam in 1889-90. And this was called Winter in Union Square Overall. In this image...
