Good Life by Angela Del Rossi Harn museum of art

Technique of the Artist

This painting was done by Monet. He used an impressionist style on his canvas. This painting is titled Champ d'avoine (Oat Field) but many of his other paintings are inspired by his garden and other beautiful flowers and scenes of nature. The style of the individual strokes that make up this dreamy landscape piece has a texture the eye can see in person but not through a screen or on paper.

Design of the Museum

This exhibit is very appealing to me because I am a feminist and a long time admirer of the Guerrilla Girls and their fight for women, people of color , and different sexualities to be heard in the art world. This exhibit had a gigantic poster taking over the wall inviting you into the exhibit where it has other pieces delivering true and satirical statements throughout the exhibit; each piece of work as witty as they are a weapon against the patriarchal dominance of recognized art.

Art and Core Values

"Islandia, Goddess of the Healing Waters" by Audrey Flack made with polychrome and gilded plaster, represents my core values because she represents democracy especially for women. Women's rights are always being discussed (half the time not even by women themselves) and we need a democratic decision from our country. In America, now many women's rights are in jeopardy and many women demonstrate their strength like Islandia in speaking out and fighting this legislature. She also represents the balance of power between men and women, which we are slowly progressing towards in America but still have a lot of global work to do.

Art and the Good Life

"New York Harbor Composite, Woodcut" by Yvonne Jacquette is made with woodcut on paper. This stands for art and the good life of me because one of my ultimate goals is to move to New York City. The electric atmosphere of creativity, individualism, and outspoken beliefs is one that resonates with me and one that I want to be a part of. This is portrayed in this work of art and is dramatized with the black and white lines emphasizing the city lights that keep it so electric.

I used an online image of "Islandia, Goddess of the Healing Waters". The rest of the photos were taken by myself.
