1) My most successful project is the blind portrait because it showcases what I am best at, realistic portraits.
2) If I could do a project over again it would be the metaphor project. I felt like I could have done a lot more with it. I looks uncomplete I wish I would have stayed with my original idea. In order to improve I would have added more straws and made it taller to give the illusion of a twisting buliding.
3) The "Teens Inspired" and the "Metaphor Project" are similar in the aspect that they both show a since of life in one way or another. The teens inspired was a repensatation of the human body connected by its vains realting to the metaphor project witch the heart is link in. They are differnt in because they are made of differnt materials.
4) A good project idea would be to make a 3D artwork by using a word that will represent it.In the end they should be able to explin why artwork and the word are connected.
We were given a paper with the decription of a person in the class I got Darek. In his paper he mantioned that he was not the best at making realistic artwork so I took it as a challenge and made a realistic portrait of a women. This took a total of 2 weeks to complet including shadding and finding the correct way to fram her face. I am proud of this artwork because I consider it to be one of my best work.
Q:When did you step back and analyze you work during this project?
A: I stepped back multiple times throughout the project. Each time i did step back I would notice something that I wanted to add or take away from it. It took me about 4 days to feel satisfied with the final product. Over all I still think I will add some changes to the artwork and improve it.
Q: Did you ask another student for feedback during your work process?
A: Yes, I did ask many people to give me their feedback and what I could do to improve the artwork. A lot of the feedback was positive and reassured what I was doing.
This art work was inspired by Woman of Venice IX (Femme de Venise IX) created by the artist Alberto Giacometti. I was inspired by the texture that the artist created and tried to replicated it in a manner. Instead of fusing everything together I decided I would create the limbs separate from one another creating a more readable artwork from distance. I liked the idea of using wires, they symbolize the human veins that run through our bodies. I did not want an ordinary shaped body I wanted it to read odd but yet keeping it understandable. The background as seen is black, I figured it would emphasize the primary focus of the artwork that being the wired body. The artwork that inspired what I'm calling "Wired body" is undeniably breathtaking, replicating or creating something that could even compare is certainly a challenge. My original idea was to hang the pieces on a slab of wood letting the pieces dangle about in the air. Unlike the original artwork that seems stiff and immobile.
The main element that I focused on in this particular artwork was texture. This artwork was a challenge for me because I am not used to drawing females. My strength is drawing men women have less facial features to work with in my opinion, whereas man have more dominate features that are easier for me personally to enhance. The texture came in when I started doing the hair which is the main point of the artwork.
Abstract by definition is art that does not attempt to represent external reality, but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, forms, colors, and textures. Originally I was going to build up making it continuously spiral upward creating an illusion with the straws (the material that I used) but after a while of doing the project I thought of the concept of empty space, which is where this idea came from. Looking at it from a distance the material that I used that was placed inside the figure it would seem as if it is floating in empty space.
This photo was taken in front of my house, I like this photo in particular because it demonstrates the complexity of the fur of animals and just how unique the eyes of a cat really are.
The article is based on a serious of questions that is primarily targeted towards art teachers. With each section there is something new that you learn, the author encourages the reader to really think about the questions and take it further and think more critically then you would normally would. Ponder upon what the artwork is before you make the judgement. To me personally this is more of a lesson plan or a guide for a teacher in the arts.
This picture was taken in a flower field it stood out to me because it was the tallest and biggest one out of all of them. It was separated from the other which made it all the more interesting. This is one of many photograph that I have taken of flowers and animals.
