Art: A Conceptional View Essay, Research Paper
Art Paper Number One
Balance- The definition in my words is all of the elements in the art come together to achieve unity. A good example is Paul C zanne s Basket of Apples -this has a nice blend of paints to achieve balance. It is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Conception- Conception is the emotional idea that comes from the artist to make a work of art. A good example is Deboya s Que Hai Que Hacermos
It shows a man being castrated by a bunch of soldiers it clearly shows the artist theme.
Conceptual Art- is the artist paints something from their minds and putting it on whatever medium they use. A good example is Salvador Dali s Time it clearly shows how a person takes something from their mind and put it down on canvas.
Perceptual- is the opposite of conceptual art the artist looks at something and from that they transfer it to there medium. A good example of this type of art is Issabel Mellrain s Venus the statue is almost real.
Form- is all the elements put together for example lines and shapes.
A good example is Albrecht Duher s Wings on a Roller it is a picture of a birds wing but it is not realistic but the person clearly knows it is a wing.
Content-to be put simple is the main idea. A very fine example is Paul C zanne s Basket of Apples you can clearly tell what the portrait is about.
Subject Matter- is what the art is about. A fine example is Deboya s Que Hai Que Hacermos you can clearly see the subject matter.
One- know the artist, his background his likes and dislike, then you will see what his painting is about.
