Abstraction And Cubism Essay, Research Paper
Something that is so unexplainable to the human eye may portray cubism. You can look at over and over again, but each time you look at it there is something new that is discovered in the painting. However in some of Picasso’s work it may be just a bunch of geometric indefinite lines and shapes, but it is the work of pure abstraction.
Observing Picasso’s work of the “Nude Woman” is obviously unforeseen along with many of his other works, but this captures the eyes of many. The definite shapes, lines, and color give off a unique work of art, but to realize that this is a picture of a nude woman propels us to really look deeper into the art. The shades of dark and light in certain areas defines the curves and indentions of the body, and the lines clarify her position. To analyze this particular painting is much more precise than the subject in the painting. You want identify each geometric shape instead of looking at the painting as a whole. In place of having recognizable form and meaning, you have this abstract and unexplainable meaning in each piece of this painting.
The art completed by Picasso of the “Nude Woman” resembles the art of Zaftig created by Jody. Zaftig, of a word being so abstract on its own signifies something being voluptuous, curvaceous, round, and shapely. Jody displayed that word very well in the exhibit that she titled Zaftig. The subject being of women’s body parts portrayed the word well, for every woman is different in their own way. Each body part has its own particular shape that defines who they are. She wanted it to be understood that there is no perfect woman because they are all perfect in their own way. The exhibit consisted of paintings done on cloth, and some being like a collage, which were of woman’s’ body parts. The one that intrigued my preference the most were the hundreds of price tags that had different pictures of women and women’s body parts all aligned in rows. Observing it from a distance may look so difficult to understand, but to look up close at each and one of the tags makes you lost in the pictures. Again such as work of Picasso, there is not a definite and exact meaning, but in each piece it has its own meaning, which is analyzed abstractly as a whole to appeal to the human eye.
