  • Conceptual Art
    459 words
    I believe that conceptual art, as a whole, is a very one sided art form. To make a piece of art that focuses only on the concept and pretty much eliminate the aesthetic factors is, in my opinion, not good art. It seems to me that with conceptual art, the creator, most of the time is so wrapped up in the Idea, that in the long run, he or she looses the important element of clarity. What I mean by clarity is the artwork's ability to convey it's message or idea to the viewer. Yes, I do believe that...

  • Good Art Piece
    1,025 words
    Image as Text Response Critical Response Art by its very nature has the tendency to be labeled either "good" or "bad". However there is no bad art, only art that has failed to connect with a viewer. To broadly label art as either good or bad is hypocritical, how could a Picasso be compared to a Rembrandt? The truth is it can't, and that's the deceptiveness of art in that it seems on the surface to be so easily criticized when in reality it's a complicated process to undertake. The piece I chose ...

    In the world of art, one category branches out from the rest. "Dada" a new breed of art, combined surrealism and exploring new ideas. One of Dada's most risky artists was Marcel Duchamp. His most famous and one of his more "childish" pieces was one entitled, "Fountain". The sculpture, if that's what you like to call it, consists of a single urinal, with the name "R. Mutt" painted on the side. The whole piece looked like it took Duchamp about twenty minutes to make. Still, this simple piece surpr...

  • Rodchenko And Giacometti
    1,153 words
    There is a great difference in art between emotion and intellect. They are two completely separate elements. Art that is emotional tends to be stirring and raw- it provokes an immediate reaction in the viewer. Art that is intellectual is deeper, it requires thought and time to chew on- to comprehend. To be successful a piece of art must contain both elements. Both Alberto Giacometti's Woman with Her Throat Cut and Alexa dr Rodchenko's Oval Hanging Construction No. 12 are successful pieces of art...

    To see a scorned, beaten, and crucified man lying dead in the arms of his mother is an image, which can inspire overwhelming emotions within the heart of an observer. Yet, for the longest time I've had such difficulty looking at Michelangelo's Pieta or any piece of art in this way. To me, art has never been about expressing oneself or conveying a message to others, but simply creating an image for the sake of beauty and perfection. When I look at the Pieta I see a cold, solid mass of marble carv...

    After reviewing the guidelines of the Gallery Review project I knew that just going to any museum or gallery would not get the job done. I understood that I would have to sit down and prepare a plan as to where I would visit. This required me to include many factors, such as where would I feel most comfortable, should I invite someone to come with me, and what type of things I expected to learn. I also understood that it was not going to be easy since I have never had an interest in art. I like ...

  • Painting By Salvador Dali

    The art world is a place where only a few can venture, a world where it seems the senile and mentally deranged get the spotlight. Salvador Dali was no different, expressing his imagination as revealed in his dreams. When you observe a painting by Salvador Dali you may ask yourself what could he have possibly been thinking of when created this image, or was he thinking? Maybe he was just letting the paintbrush flow across the paper, we may never know but we can choose to interpret. Salvador Dali'...
  • Original Meaning Of The Piece Of Art
    965 words
    There are many barriers to overcome when viewing a piece of art correctly. To understand a piece of art is to understand everything about it and the artist who created it. A person viewing art must look past monetary value, understand the artwork's history, and read into the language and images the artwork is expressing. John Berger explains this greatly in his essay "Ways of Seeing". Berger in his essay expresses his views on the way art is viewed in society. He expresses his views on the perce...
