Unit4 Disc 5: Objective Description Subjective Analysis


#1

ch.12 Lotus Sutra
-Meandering, Organic, and Calligraphic Line suggest expressive, flowing and lyrical content.
-The use of positive and negative space in this paining projects what is seen and not.
-The tint and shading used gives 3D effect in different planes.
-Planes reveal the levels of or stages within the photo creating a sense of depth.
-Extreme short curled lines provides texture.
The overall gist of this piece urges me to delve deeper into worship, no matter where i am in life or physically where i am while assuring me how universal all is trying to arrive and be the best humble person they can be.

Pair of Egyptian Atef Crown Earrings
-Much texture due to the continuous outline enveloping the entire piece.
-Meandering lines exhibiting geometric lines create balance and symmetry.
-Mass is greatest displayed by the heavy weight towards the bottom of the earring, yet balancing on a smaller point.
-Colors are opposing, yet unified creating tension, but within a harmonious structure.
These gorgeously crafted earrings if ever get to own them or would own them give me a great feeling of organization, respect and being cared for.

This was a great assignment and unit to study. Saylor Academy rocks! Thank You.


#2

I chose ‘Gouache’ and ‘Study of Isabel Rawsthorne,’ both by Francis Bacon.

Gouache:
The work is mostly composed of angular shapes
Perspective is skewed, where planes are obscure and difficult to distinguish from one another
Complementary colors are used, creating tension and 'pop’
A meandering, sinuous form is present

The work made me feel cluttered & disorganized

Study of Isabel Rawsthorne:
Work is composed of strictly sinuous lines and forms
Highly textured and brushstrokes visible
Dramatic - use of stark contrast in color and value

The subject seems stern, focused intently on something off frame.
