Medium of the Art/Technique of the Artist
Motion Picture (Times Square) Yvonne Jacquette
This painting was one of the paintings that caught my eye the first time I went to the museum. The reason why I struck my eye is one its a painting of Time Square and I love New York so it brought about a nostalgic feeling. I feel this way because Jacquette uses bright colors to symbolize the nature of New York City- the city that doesn't sleep. She also uses the artistically style of pointillist which I love because some of my favorite painters such as Van Gogh, Starry Night, and Georges Seurat, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jat-te. To me the use of pointillism allows for the painting to be more vibrant but give it a sense of realism as if I was looking down upon Times Square. The painting made me feel like I was there in the City that everything was going in a slow motion, and that time is slowly going by allowing me to enjoy the atmosphere and it's auora. Looking at the painting I felt secure, blissful, and solemn.
Design of the Muesum
I think the most beautiful part of the Harn Muesum was actually a hidden gem for me as I didn't realize it existed until I went a second time, with Gianna, and the space which I enjoyed was the Garden in the Asian section of the Muesum. I was overwhelmed with how beautiful it was, the lighting was natural sun light and I was surrounded with beautiful flowers and in the presence of Mother Nature. Even though it was only a small area it was by far my favorite part of the Muesum because it was natural, it was a living environment, and it was peaceful. There was no art it was just us and nature in an enclosed environment- the only art that was present was the art which we envision and capture with our cameras.
Art and Core Values
Chelsea Composite II- Yvonne Jacquette
Yvonne Jacquette's painting, Chelsea Composite II makes me feel in awe of the landscape. It makes me feel as if I'm standing in Chelsea on a building looking at the city. I feel like that if I were actually there I would experience the same emotions of awe, amusement, and flustered as I do when I look at this painting. This painting screams never give up because no one knows what will happen or what you will achieve. I get this message because towards the bottom the buildings are just apartments and small buildings; however the further you move up skyscrapers begin to form which to me shows the movement and progression of life- we all start somewhere and sometimes that somewhere isn't at the top but with effort and time anything is possible.
Art and the Good Life
Another Girl Another Planet Justine Kurland
Justine Kurland, Another Girl Another Planet represents the Good Life by expressing the joyous moments spent with friends and family. Through the picturesque scenery which is very solemn and majestic we see people basking in natures presence, and cherishing each other's company. The people seem to be at peace and are most likely in a peace of mind. Thus nature and friends and family help to establish a stronger relationship with one another.
