Overall my experience at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art was a great one. There were so many diverse pieces of art. Whether it was a beautiful painting or a detailed sculpture, the Harn Museum was a great experience. Some of the highlights of my trip will be presented in this Spark Story. Considering the medium of the art/technique of the artist, the design of the museum, my core values, and how it relates to the Good Life really helped me take a lot out of this experience.
Medium of the Art/Technique of the Artist
Here I am with a painting by Yvonne Jacquette. It depicts a typical chaotic night in the city. This painting particularly caught my eyes because of the vibrant colors and overall structure of the painting. The technique was very interesting to me. I liked how the whole painting was sort of tilted and that everything was on that tilted line. The vibrant colors and detail of this oil painting was truly spectacular! I could picture myself jumping into the painting and being a part of the chaos. She depicted a chaotic city scene without making it too crowded. Some paintings are too crowded and I personally think that takes away from the painting as a whole. I really enjoyed this piece and it caught my eye when it first saw it.
